The extremes of rural poverty in the Third World are an outrage'. Starting
with this uncompromising statement, the author challenges preconceptions
dominating rural development. The central theme of this book is that rural
poverty is often unseen or misperceived by outsiders, those who are not
themselves rural and poor.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0582644437, Paperback)

Rural poverty is often unseen or misperceived by outsiders. Dr Chambers contends that researchers, scientists, administrators and fieldworkers rarely appreciate the richness and validity of rural people's knowledge or the hidden nature of rural poverty. This is a challenging book for all concerned with rural development, as practitioners, academics, students or researchers.
