The growth of the International women's movement over the past two decades has challenged the international community to respond to its vision of social transformation. This book examines the response of one set of key players-the international donor agencies. It compares the donors priorities with those of their development partners and argues that, although significant achievements have been made, the fundamental goals of the women's movement-transforming social and gender relations and creating a more equitable world- still elude us. Why has this progress been so elusive?

This book, second in a series of studies under a ‘Technology Choice Project’ at BIDS, examines in some depth the extent of technology transfer that has taken place in the Bangladesh Fertilizer Industry. It appears that the technology transfer process has remained more or less confined to the acquisition of production capability; that project preparation and appraisal were generally inadequate, and that local participation and implementation in project design was nil or negligible.

This book develops an integrated approach of comparative analysis of agrarian change in Bangladesh and West Bengal. The main hypothesis examined in the study is that the prevailing agrarian structure in these areas may act as an impediment to the dissemination of new technologies resulting in endemic low growth potential, if not stagnation of agriculture. The author argues for understanding the influence of agrarian structure on technology adoption and productivity that lead to certain type of surplus utilization with their continual regeneration on progressively higher levels.

It used to be claimed, notably in developing counties, that imperfection of factor markets is the determinant factor in explaining unemployment and poverty. Solutions such as supply of inputs and land reform etc. were suggested. Yet in poorer countries the odds are, that even within a village and during a peak farm operation, the question of disguised unemployment is liable to be troublesome as these are time specific and water management specific.
