Economic Development in Palanpur over Five Decades

Peter Lanjouw and Nicholas Stern

Clarendon Press

  • Extensive detailed fieldwork
  • Solid theoretical framework from two prominent and distinguished economists
  • REVIEWS OF Palanpur: The Economy of an Indian Village [Bliss & Stern, 1982]
  • 'A substantial contribution to economic theory ... Bliss and Stern not only provide a fascinating account of how the village economy of Palanpur functions, but also how their findings tie up with economic theory ... [the authors] clearly do deal with real people rather than with the phantom figures that haunt so much of much of economic theory. This is one of the many attractive features of this illuminating and important book.'
  • Amartya Sen, London Review of Books
  • 'An important contribution to Indian agricultural economics and to development theory.'
  • Population and Development Review
