This book investigates in detail the varying economic fortunes of Palanpur, a village in rural North India, between 1957 and 1993, building on the research begun in Palanpur: The Economics of an Indian Village, published in 1982. Although economic well-being rose in some important respects, Palanpur experienced stagnation and even decline in other areas. The authors present and analyse detailed qualitative and quantitative longitudinal data to illuminate this uneven progress, and their results will be of interest to anthropologists and sociologists as well as economists and all those involved in development studies. -;This book provides an account of economic development in Palanpur, a village in rural North India, based on five detailed surveys of the village over the period 1957 to 1993. These five decades have seen economic well-being rise in some important respects, but stagnation and even decline in other areas. The analysis presented here focuses on the reasons behind this uneven progress. The authors tie in the background issues of the evolution of poverty and inequality and mobility over time with causal factors such as technological progress, demographic and sectoral changes, the operation of markets, and the role of public action. The richness and unique nature of the qualitative and quantitative data collected and presented by Lanjouw and Stern yields an analysis which illuminates questions of direct importance to researchers in a wide variety of disciplines.
