Rural Development: Putting the Last First
Publisher John Wiley and Sons
The central theme of this book is that rural poverty is often unseen or misperceived by outsiders, those who are not themselves rural and poor.
The author contends that researchers, scientists, administrators and fieldworkers rarely appreciate the richness and validity of rural people's knowledge or the hidden nature of rural poverty. This is a challenging book for all concerned with rural development, as practitioners, academics, students or researchers.
