About the Book :

These set of volumes is based on a UNCRD study of the impact of national policies and programmes on rural development in eight developing countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America. These volumes critically examines the national policies and programmes launched by the government to help the rural poor in the context of the newly emerging class structure and concludes that the process of modernization within the framework of the classical capitalist model has further strengthened the powerful and weakened the powerless. International capital has played a crucial role in the economy of Brazil and in the direction, pace and content of its development. The volumes examine in depth the implications of the capitalist model of development for rural municipals and families living in remote Amazonia. Continuing deprivation of the poor is what the Brazilian model of development has produced.
