About this book

Focuses on understanding the cultural implications of changes introduced by government programmes in an agrarian society, asserting that the introduction of new agricultural techniques, new crops, and new conceptualizations of droughts leads not only to economic and political changes, but also to changes in the social patterns and symbols of the society.
