About Author :

Barbara Harriss is trained in geography, agriculture and agricultural economies. She has been interested in South Asian agrarian development since 1969. Her field work has had two focuses. One, agricultural marketing, has given rise to two books published by Concept in 1984; 'State and Market' and "Exchange Relations and Poverty in Dry and Agriculture" and to three other books. The other, nutrition, is exemplified in this book and has been inspired both by a fruitful association of seven years standing with the Department of Human Nutrition of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and by her own experience with two daughters in India. Since 1987 she has held a lectureship in agricultural economics at the International Development Centre, Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford University, and is a Fellow of Wolfson College. He is also an affiliate of the Madras Institute of Development Studies. Over the years she has been a research consultant for eight UN agencies.
