Labour and poverty in rural Tanzania

£19.99

Product description

Winner of the 1988 Edgar Graham Book Prize awarded by the School of Oriental and African Studies, this assessment, undertaken for the ILO, is based on a broader and sounder set of data than any previous attempt to appraise the Tanzanian experience.

Rural Tanzania, one of the poorest areas of the world, has been the arena for bold social and economic official experiments which have commanded world attention. Yet, because of the lack of data, these experiments have never been properly assessed. This book, based upon large scale surveys designed and conducted by the authors, first describes how the representative household is diversified over a range of economic activities including migration, then identifies and measures inequality using an advanced approach to the measurement of living standards and finally shows the extent to which inequality exists within as opposed to between villages. The study also investigates the impact of government initiative such as cooperative farms, land reform, education and health services and shows how some have had effects which run counter to their declared objectives. This book will be of particular interest to development economists.

Ex-library copy. Has small sticker on the spine and the remains of a sticker on the first blank page of the book, but is otherwise a very good and clean copy.
