  • This book is a product of intensive fieldwork in West Central Nepal over a period of four years in the mid to late 1970's. It focuses on the lives of the seventy poorest rural household identified in an earlier survey of over six hundred. The households were re-visited and interviewed again, using a more participatory and interactive approach than in the initial rural house hold survey. They were asked what were thee forces that made them poor an kept them poor.The answers reveal a shocking pattern of calculated oppression an expropriation an systematic neglect of their basic needs an rights- with government an the state appearing mainly as a coercive, rather than a positive, force.
