About the Book :

The book discusses some crucial problems like community versus market, food, village-self sufficiency, village characteristics, growth with equity, land tenure, rural credit, decentralized planning, social economics of scheduled castes and tribes, cooperative action etc. in the perspective of rural development. The focus is on a new type of cultural revolution centred upon technological revolution that would uphold the dignity of man. A retrospective view is combined with a vision of future possibilities.
