This comprehensive book is an attempt to understand the working of the operational part of this act—the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Scheme (MGNREGS). The expert contributors to this book have presented evidences of implementation and impact of the scheme across India, including both agriculturally developed states and the backward ones, and states where the scheme is better implemented as well as those where it is not. Their essays go on to explain the meaning, context, issues and development policy implications of MGNREGS through theoretical and empirical papers.

This volume presents several studies on right to work or employment guarantee programs in rural India. It does not debate the merits of these programs so much as examines how they have worked, but the information will be valuable to critics and proponents alike. The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act of 2005 is a public works program designed to stimulate economic development in rural India. Editor Pankaj introduces the contexts, issues, and policies. Three essays consider poverty-alleviation through employment, four consider regional variations in implementation and impact, and another four consider how employment guarantee programs effect rural transformation through different agents. A final section considers the prospects and challenges of implementing these employment programs. The contributors are professors and scholars of economics, development, and sociology from India and Europe. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
