Throughout large parts of the developing world rural livelihoods are in crisis. Even in those parts of the third world where there has been growth of food output, that growth has rarely been translated into a commensurate expansion of livelihoods. This book examines how people in developing countries survive, and how their lives have been affected by the great changes since the Second World War. It examines the diverse human implications of rural change, the various crises of rural livelihoods which arise from change, and the survival strategies of individuals and households. The book describes the great processes of agrarian transformation which have fundamentally altered rural livelihoods in developing countries, identifying some of the dilemmas for public action which arise from agrarian transformation and the crises of rural livelihoods. The contributors draw on a range of disciplinary approaches to the subject--including anthropology, sociology, economics, political economy, agricultural science, and development studies.
