This probing study analyzes the everyday politics of a rice farming village in central Luzon.  Contending that the faction and patron-client relations emphasized by many studies of Philippine politics are but a small part of political life, Kerkvliet offers a nuanced portrait of political relationships among villagers and the people beyond their village with whom they interact.  Villagers’ complex political thinking and outlooks figure prominently in their ongoing claims and counter-claims to land, jobs, and other resources crucial for their lives.
