How much of the devolution of power in India to the local level is real, and how much is rhetoric? Fieldwork in three different areas of Uttar Pradesh enables the authors of this book to chart the joint impact of feudal dominance and modernization policies. They conclude that the devolution of power to largely non-functioning panchayats can neither empower the poor nor relieve their poverty.
