About the author(s):


Drawing on a large number of mostly primary sources collected through fieldwork, the book tries to understand the complexity of poverty that occurs in contiguous areas from both macroscopic and microscopic perspectives, and examines the latest developments in the government’s efforts to combat poverty. The author argues that while contiguous poor areas have benefitted from some of the same poverty-reduction measures that have been implemented in smaller poverty-stricken areas, these measures should be supplemented by others that are customized to tackle poverty that affect large geographical areas.
