This compilation includes original essays that examine past and current status of the agricultural sector in India and delineate the challenges it faces in the era of economic reforms. It highlights the issues that are beginning to raise serious policy discussions in India in view of continuing agrarian crisis and the Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007-2012). Apart from providing macro level analyses, the collection also features studies which are based on micro (field) data that reflect the realities of the Indian agrarian economy.

In addition, Reforming Indian Agriculture: Towards Employment Generation and Poverty Reduction focuses on the issues of employment, poverty, food and nutrition, and reviews other aspects of development policy like fostering inter-state cooperation for optimum utilization of resources, privatization policy to mobilize funds for social sector development and pattern of adoption of improved technologies by small scale industries in the country. The book will be invaluable for students, researchers and academicians working in the fields of Development Economics, Rural and Agricultural Economics, and Development Policy Analysis.

This is an exceedingly well-researched and written publication dealing with the issues ranging from the fatigue of the green revolution to pervasive malnutrition and poverty.
