Abstract

The early twentieth century was a time of tremendous change for the Philippines when American rule,liberal democracy and capitalism, introduced a generation of Filipinos to a new world.As they navigated their way through the era they faced new sets of challenges. While some practices were reconciled with the modern ways, others had to yield to changing times.Among those affected was the relationship of landlords and their share tenants.In Nueva Ecija, a province in Central Luzon, while internal defects of share tenancy already caused landlord-tenant relations to deteriorate, external factors added pressure to the already volatile situation.These factors were: economic instability, consumerism, pricecontrol, open government support to peasants, class consciousness and labor leaders.The paper shall evaluate the confluence of the defects of share tenancy and the external factors that led to agrarian unrest in the province during the prewar era.It will also assess the impact of changing times on landlordism in the Philippines.
