Henry Bernstein is Professor of Development Studies in the University of London at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and also Adjunct Professor in the College of Humanities and Development Studies, China Agricultural University, Beijing.
In a long academic career he has taught and researched at universities in the UK, Tanzania, Turkey, South Africa, China, France, Netherlands, Canada, and the USA; he has also been a consultant for the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in Tanzania, for the UN International Drugs Control Commission in Ghana, and for the UK's Department for International Development in South Africa.
He is interested in social theory and in the political economy of agrarian change and rural development; he was coeditor of the Journal of Peasant Studies from 1985-2000, and founding editor of the Journal of Agrarian Change 2001-2007, of which he is now Emeritus Editor.
He has just completed a book on Class Dynamics of Agrarian Change for a new series of 'little books on big ideas' in the study of agrarian change, aimed at activists in land and rural movements and NGOs as well as university students. This will be published in a number of languages.
He looks forward to his first visit to Brazil in July 2009, where he's been invited to a big conference on rural development in Porto Alegre, to spending a period of teaching and research in China in 2010, and then to his retirement and more time to think and write.
