About the Book :

Sustaining the rural-urban populations in India has become a challenge in rapidly transforming socio-economic environment. The Peri Urban Interface Livelihoods is an introduction to the growing but complex relationship between urban and rural places at the edge of expanding city – the peri urban interface. The book takes rural-urban inter-actions as its focus, rather than considering them as only a part of either urban development or rural development. It examines a range of interactions and its resultant consequences and transformations in social, economic and cultural environment. The highlight of the book is that it uses a wealth of research friendly features including boxes, maps, diagrams, etc. It promotes a clearer understanding of the opportunities as well as the challenges that rural-urban interactions represents in the PUI.
