1 C.H. Hanumantha Rao
Agriculture, Food Security, Poverty and Environment: Essays on Post-reform India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195671953 / 9780195671957; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the outcome of explorations over the last decade into an economic reform package for India which reconciles economic efficiency with social equity. It examines economic performance and policies in interrelated areas including the agricultural sector, food security, rural poverty, and sustainable rural development in India and suggests an agenda for further reform. In drawing out a comparative perspective between post-reform India and East Asia, Hanumantha Rao attributes the extraordinary high GDP growth rate in agriculture, speedier demographic transition and the rapid pace of poverty reduction achieved by East and Southeast Asia to not just an open and market-driven economy, but to the ability of the State to implement radical land reform, infrastructure, and human resource development in the pre-reform period. Many of the shortfalls in achieving the objectives of growth with social justice are due to the failure to take account of these initial conditions. That India did much less in all these respects is seen as an important reason for its slower progress even after the initiation of reforms. The author suggests the following measures as essential for sustaining reform: stepping up agricultural growth to sustain overall growth rate in GDP removing restrictions on domestic trade public investment in basic infrastructure such as roads, irrigation, marketing, power, research, and extension expanding institutional credit to meet farmer's requirements This collection, showcasing the work of one of the foremost scholars in the discipline, is essential for students and researchers of agricultural and development economics, environment, and international trade. It will be a valuable guide for policymakers, activists, as well as for agricultural and trade analysts. Printed Pages: 356. 014001

Growth, Equity, Environment and Population: Economic and Sociological Perspectives
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761936777 / 9780761936770; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In India the process of modernization and development was initiated in the early 1950s, bringing in its fold a number of issues. This book discusses and analyzes from an economic and social perspective some of these vital concerns—growth, equity, environment and human resources. It is a collection of the work of researchers at the Institute of Economic Growth (IEG), inspired by the forthcoming Golden Jubilee Year of the IEG. The essays in the volume employ sophisticated quantitative techniques in the analyses, thereby enhancing the quality of the subject matter. The volume will prove immensely useful for planners and policymakers as well as students and scholars of development studies. The essays are organized in five sections. The first section comprises issues concerning growth viewed from the perspectives of macro-economics, agriculture and industry. Another section deals with regional and gender equity. Economics and sociology of the environment constitute a third section, while a fourth section is about population, migration and health. The last section discusses sociological perspectives on religion, the institution of family and its place in modern society. Printed Pages: 486. 028532
