About this Item: Stree, Calcutta, 2000. Hardbound. Condition: As New. New. Contents Introduction/Joy Deshmukh Ranadive. 1. The adjustment policy programme in India and the household/Joy Deshmukh Ranadive. 2. Structural adjustment and social sector expenditure in Indian states/K. Seeta Prabhu. 3. Women's health a view from the household/Malavika Karlekar. 4. Perspectives on gender poverty and environmental connections under economic reforms in India/Kumud Sharma. 5. The impact of the structural adjustment programme on gender and environment in India/Sumi Krishna. 6. Survey findings a photograph/Preet Rustagi Vasudha Jain and Indrani Mazumdar. 7. Conclusion/Joy Deshmukh Ranadive. Bibliography. Index. Eager to be global India's economic policymakers have accepted stabilization and structural adjustment as necessary tools of development. What does this mean for women. While gender has become increasingly important in development policies there is less awareness that policies and structural adjustment are never gender neutral. The myth of neutrality continues unchallenged while women often suffer de facto exclusion from the development process because of methods of implementation in the field. Government aid programmes requiring the consent of father or husband Green revolution facilitators who passed on expertise to men only Panchayat laws seeking to debar women with more than two children from holding office the instances are legion. Moreover there are the social expectations that women must make do with less less food less education less health care. In the era of globalization where resources for the social sector will come out of an ever shrinking common pool the burden on women to make do in the household will increase and this will jeopardize their ability to generate human resources. Globalization demands a high quality labour force but at the same time endangers the conditions that will produce such a force. In this meticulous pioneering study the contributors all well known women scholars from the fields of economics sociology education health and environment examine what happens once these macro policies affect women at the micro level within the household especially the poorer ones in urbans slums and rural villages. Joy Deshmukh Ranadive begins with an overview of structural adjustment then K. Seeta Prabhu in chapter 2 charts the decline in social sector expenditure by the state. Malavika Karlekar Kumud Sharma and Sumi Krishna in chapters 3 4 and 5 analyse the effect of this decline on the health and education sectors and on the environment. They show that coping strategies available to women invariably involve a cost in terms of increased domestic labour demanded of younger girls and women longer hours processing cheaper alternative foods and materials invisible piecework in the home which is poorly paid and marginalized. Privatization will inevitably push up the cost of health care even as it pushes low quality state services out of the market. Rationing of subsidized food through the public distribution system will decrease. This is brought out vividly in the household studies in Chapter 6 by Indrani Mazumdar Preet Rustagi and Vasudha Jain. Finally Joy Deshmukh Ranadive summarizes the book's findings in the conclusion. Policy planners and commentators who calculate the cost of globalization are rarely aware of these hidden penalties or lack hard data on them. This study aims not only to uncover the facts about the implementation of structural adjustment policies and the possible damage they can do but also to challenge the attitude that dismisses costs of this kind as incidental and place concerns over unequal gendered power equations in a central position in the discussion. 326 pp. Seller Inventory # 55150

Professor Bhalla could enthuse his students so much that many of them are providing stewardship to several departments and laboratories of Anthropology and allied disciplines. His students, colleagues and well-wishers decided to honour him on the occasion of his forty years of excellent and devoted service to the cause of Indian physical anthropology and human genetics. Twenty-six scholars wrote research and review papers in the respective areas of their contemporary interest. This compendium of fourteen outstanding is not only labour of love dedicated to their respected colleagues and teacher but also reflects the current trends in physical anthropology and human genetics.

Index. Industrialization urbanization equation can hardly explain the growth of the urban spaces in most of the developing regions of the world in general and the underdeveloped areas within them in particular. The process of urbanization in such cases can best be explained in terms of social political and demographic forces rather than the forces of economics. Contributions in this volume have made an attempt to understand the nature of growth of the urban areas in relatively underdeveloped north eastern region of India where urban spaces being grafted primarily due to the spread of the administrative centers are devoid of any strong economic raison d'etre and hence informal sector has become the predominant source of urban livelihood. Attempts have been made to unravel the nexus between informality and poverty that reinforce each other in the urban labour market. Special efforts have been made to study the slums where urban poverty has been concentrated. As the management of slums has become an integral part of overall urban administration a number of contributors have pleaded for a better deal for the underprivileged slum dwellers. 292 pp. Seller Inventory # 60157

The concept of human development is perhaps as old as the human civilisation. Earlier it was identified with acquisition of wealth and prosperity. However in the present times it is associated with other human activities too that tend to either enhance their skills or help them to improve their perception towards critical socio economic and cultural issues and enable them to participate meaningfully in the mainstream of developmental activities. Our experience of more than five decades of planned development shows that the process of planning has not been able to provide a uniform level of human development to all sections of the society. The consensus emerging during all these years has been that by stepping up investment in the fields of education health sanitation and other critical social inputs the capacity of vulnerable sections of the society could substantially be enhanced which would also help in striking a socio economic parity. With the onset of globalisation there has been a drastic cut in the plan allocations in many of these critical social components which is likely to affect adversely the building up capacity of these groups and ultimately the overall level of human development. Research papers presented in this book offer a critical analysis of various dimensions of human development. 382 pp. Seller Inventory # 62185

Most states in India have experienced relatively high growth rates since 1991 when extensive economic liberalization measures were introduced. However, there does not seem to be a recognizable correlation between growth rates of the states and their development record. This volume, by distinguished economists and policymakers, analyses the contribution of liberalization-induced growth to development. Combining economic theory with rigorous empirical investigations, this volume identifies regional disparities within and across states-Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Bihar. It also examines specific development indicators, namely, child labour, nutrition, education, and growth in employment, trade, and productivity since liberalization. Covering a wide range of topical issues, the volume offers suggestions for policy at the state and sectoral levels to make growth inclusive in India. Fresh perspective on the Indian growth experience Presents case studies from various states Combines theory and empirical data Policy-oriented. Seller Inventory # 108513
