Agrarian Questions

Kaushik Basu (Author)
Synopsis Few studies have systematically analysed the link between agrarian structures and agricultural growth. This book covers recent advances in the theory of agrarian relations, discusses these in the Indian context, and analyses the performance of Indian agriculture. It highlights new theoretical insights in the extensive literature on sharecropping, credit markets and labour markets. It also analyses issues such as coercion and freedom, and argues for locating the analysis of contracts within the relevant context of socioeconomic relations. In addition to these theoretical issues, the contributors provide an extremely valuable bird’s eye view of the actual experience of Indian agriculture since independence and a careful study of the link between agriculture and overall economic progress in the Indian context. Students, teachers and researchers in the area of agricultural economics and development will find this book interesting.

About the author

Kaushik Basu

Kaushik Basu is Carl Marks Professor of Economics at Cornell University.  He has been Professor of Economics at the Delhi School of Economics and has to his credit a large number of monographs, edited volumes, and essay collections (including Economic Graffiti and Of People, Of Places).  ‘Kaushik Basu is that triply rare being-an Indian intellectual who is open-minded, an economic theorist who is interested in human beings, and an American academic who has a sense of style.  These, and many other, gifts are on display in this richly readable collection of essays.  In prose that is always elegant and often witty, Basu throws fresh light here on themes of compelling importance to India and the world-the role of the market, the relations between states, the perils and promises of globalization.’
