9780198296966: Rural Livelihoods and Diversity in Developing Countries

Rural families in developing countries make a living by engaging in diverse activities. These range from farming, to rural trade, to migration to distant cities and even abroad. This book explores the implications of rural livelihood diversity for key topics in development studies and for poverty reduction policies. The livelihoods approach is gaining momentum, and this is the first book to set it out in detail.

About the Author:

Frank Ellis is at University of East Anglia.

Review:

`this book ... has much to commend it'
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies

`This is a good guide to those entering the subject with little prior knowledge'
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies

`Professor Ellis is to be congratulated. Not for the first time, he has produced a book whose chapters can readily be added to student reading lists'
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies

`In a field where there has been much excitement and debate over the last two years, little of this has been overtaken by events: a tribute oto the author's ability to present lucidly mainstream positions and yet still incorporate insights from some interesting but less well known work'
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies

`The great virtue of Ellis's book is that it summarises the literature, and seeks to define the terms in a way that will enable future discussion to proceed from a common base'
Mary Tiffen, Development Policy Review

`strongly recommended. If you only have time to read one book on livelihoods, this is it'
Mary Tiffen, Development Policy Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Both livelihoods and diversity have become popular topics in development studies. The livelihood concept offers a more complete picture of the complexities of making a living in rural areas of low income countries than terms formerly considered adequate, such as subsistence, incomes, or employment. Diversity recognizes that people manage by doing many different things rather than just one or a few things. This book sets out the rural livelihoods approach within the larger context of past and current themes in rural development. It adopts diversity as its principal theme and explores the implications of diverse rural livelihoods for ideas about poverty, agriculture, environment, gender, and macroeconomic policy. It also considers appropriate methods for gaining quick and effective knowledge about the livelihoods of the rural poor for project and policy purposes. Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780198296966
