This chapter considers how, in the field of agriculture, the Communist party had sought to find a backing for itself among the middle layers of the population and use them to offset the power of the revolutionary segment of the anti-Franco camp and to assure its own hegemony. Aided by their control of the ministry of agriculture, the Communists had gained a substantial foothold on the countryside and were able to influence greatly events therein. Yet, in their efforts to win the support of the rural middle classes, both right-wing and Republican, the Communists were forced to restrain the collectivist tendencies not only among the left Socialists and Anarchosyndicalists, but even within their own youth movement.

Keywords:   agriculture, rural middle classes, Communists, collectivization, rural economy
