The fifth in the Socio-Economic Survey series of the Foundation for Agrarian Studies, this book is based on three village surveys conducted in West Bengal, in June–July 2010 and May–June 2015. The villages studied were Panahar in the Old Alluvial region of Bankura district, Amarsinghi in the New Alluvial region of Maldah district, and Kalmandasguri in the Terai region of Koch Bihar district. The chapters in the book give details of the production conditions, incomes, employment, poverty and human development status of rural households at an important juncture in the State’s development and political trajectory.

Since 2005, the Foundation has undertaken an India-wide programme of village studies, titled Project on Agrarian Relations in India (PARI). The project involves description and analysis, and the creation of a detailed database on villages in diverse agro-ecological regions of the country.
