Summary

Presenting new research on rural-urban migration in developing countries, this book combines novel economic theories with empirics, and focuses on the social dimensions of such movement. Centering on the movement from villages to cities in South Asia, and in India in particular, the book argues the case for more nuanced theories and empirical inquiries informed by novel theoretical perspectives, taking into account social structure and pluralistic social relations.
