This collection of essays in political economy seeks to unravel the forces which have acted as a drag on Indian development. The Achilles' heel of Indian development plans, the author argues, has been their preoccupation with investment planning and neglect of institutional transformation. The results are to be seen in the persistence, four decades after Independence, of `semi-feudal' production relations in large parts of rural India. It is the central argument of these essays that India's development will be an impossibility unless outmoded production relations are eliminated and agriculture imbued with dynamism. Within this broad framework, the author discusses a wide range of subjects including macro-economic plan models; choice of techniques; growing political assertion by the middle peasantry; roots of agrarian violence; and the vital issue of uneven regional growth.
