About the Book :

This reader focuses on the social, economic and cultural changes experienced by the people of Punjab in the wake of agrarian developments. The process of economic development and social change becomes more relevant in the regime of liberalisation and globalisation. The readings are organized in a way that emphasize changes across several major areas of study. Based on the data gathered from field work and secondary sources, this reader vividly describes the ground realities of an agrarian society like that of Punjab, which is rapidly transforming itself in terms of needs, aspirations and socio economic perceptions of the people. This publication would be of great help to the students, teachers, rural experts, policy makers, bureaucrats and anyone with an interest in Punjab Society.
