Population, Poverty and Environment in North East India

P.M. Passah (Editor) B. Datta Ray (Editor) H.K. Mazhari (Editor)

The volume analyses and suggests remedies for countering the degrading social situation. The towns are fortresses of wealth surrounded by hungry people, the victims of poverty. The poverty is due to low land-man ratio, dependence of the poor on wage income and their inability to find wage employment throughout the year in the villages. The papers included in this volume are an attempt to study the issues.
