Synopsis: Images of the poor often fall into two contrasting depictions; on one hand, individuals and communities labeled as poor are seen as powerless victims of deprivation, and on the other, as thriving in solidarity, and authenticity, uncontaminated by capitalist ways of life. The articles in The Byways of Poor attempt to analyze poverty beyond these stereotypes. Drawing on cases from Zimbabwe, Mozambique, India, Bangladesh, Peru, and Mexico, and examining a diverse sphere of interactions, including those between donors and beneficiaries, local authorities and citizens, and employers and employees, the contributors in this book challenge traditional approaches to poverty, focusing on the resources, skills, and organizations by which individuals and communities struggle to alleviate their own financial and social hardships.  

About the Author: Karsten Pærregaard is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Copenhagen. Neil Webster is a senior researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies.

Book Description Museum Tusculanum Press, Denmark, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Two contrasting images typically represent the poor in development studies and practice. On the one hand, they are portrayed as those who do not have: deprivation is the quintessence of their identity, the definition of their being. The very notion of poor dooms the bearer to a subordinate, powerless status. Alternatively, they are idealistically depicted as thriving in solidarity, rich traditions and true authentic experience uncontaminated by capitalist ways of life and harmoniously linked to nature. An analysis of poverty requires stepping back from these stereotypical notions of the poor and examining the ways in which those identified as destitute deploy resources and act in pursuing their livelihoods. Taking cases from Zimbabwe, Mozambique, India, Bangladesh, Peru and Mexico and spanning diverse spheres of interaction: between donors and beneficiaries, local authorities and citizens, employers and employees, as well as between different social and ethnic groups the contributions in this volume focus on people s struggles to alleviate their poverty or to deal with situations of hardship and privation. They challenge traditional approaches within studies on poverty and developing countries by addressing the ways in which resources including land, labour, credit and aid, water and cash, but also knowledge, skills, organisation and moral entitlements are accessed, deployed and negotiated. Whether successful or not, individual and collective efforts to juggle adversity help us understand the mechanisms by which poverty is reproduced, but also contested.
