The book goes deep into the roots of the problem of farmers suicide based on number of factors. Suicide has cumulative causation. It occurs due to various reasons and some time the circumstantial evidence leads to reach a conclusion but more often such inferences may go wrong. Understanding the processes and situations leading or contributing to a suicidal state and its consequent influence on the decision making process is a key to understand suicide. It results from a complex interaction of psychological social cultural financial and environmental factors. Here this book seeks to understand the suicide cases through various causative factors. As the investigation is more focused on farmer's suicides naturally fulcrum of the analysis is farm centered activities. But at the same time other qualitative factors imparting suicides is explained in clear detail. The two major issues namely causes and consequences of suicide and strategies to overcome suicide are discussed in detail in the book. Different articles have highlighted the situations of different parts of the country. This book will be of great help to the policy makers and social scientist who are engaged in development work. 170 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 65582
