About the Book

This volume is twelfth in the series 'Land Reforms in India'. The essays in this volume bring out the multi-dimensional aspects of the agrarian crisis, and its impact on farmers' suicides leading to public policy. A distinctive feature of this collection is its holistic approach towards viewing farm sector distress, instead of looking for isolated causes and solutions.

The essays are based on the research and analyses conducted by academics and administrators from different parts of the country. These examine the reasons for the growing agrarian crisis and increasing incidences of farmers' suicides in specific regions of the country. They take into account regional specifics in agricultural growth and implementation of policies in different states. In doing this, they bring forth different shades of farm sector distress, which in turn, leads to a better understanding of the situation. The compilation also attempts to define a systematic policy line.
