Description

The low brackets of the developing societies have been regarded as lacking the attitudinal prerequisites of modern man to cope with the challenges of modernity. In this book, the author attempts to critically scrutinize these assumptions and explore alternative views to explain the phenomenon at hand. The central argument is that, rather than being marginal per se, the poor in the developing countries are marginalized by structural and institutional arrangements that work to their disadvantage. To cope with these situations the poor develop lines of action that are rational indeed, and adapted to the circumstances at hand.
