520 _aThis book attempts to portray the fine-grained impacts of industrialization and the availability of work in a major city on a single village, called Sugao, located some 150 miles from Bombay. It describes some of the effects of macro-level, “top-down,” development planning on a village microcosm as observed from the vantage point of the village itself. As far as it is possible for an outsider to do so, Dandekar has attempted to understand and convey the perceptions of some of the people she got to know well in Sugao. Includes maps, diagrams, and photos. It is excellent supplementary text for courses dealing with development, rural society, planning, rural-urban migrations, or women’s issues. Hemalata C. Dandekar is Professor and Department Head of City and Regional Planning at California State University, San Luis Obispo.
