Rural development is a subject that appears to be plagued by a central paradox: development is necessary to alleviate rural poverty, but while new technology has raised agricultural output, it has also increased the suffering of millions of poor landless families in many Third World countries. The rural poor, especially women, have been marginalized; urban migrants have become desperate unemployed squatters, not well-paid industrial workers; and environmental degradation has proved severe. The authors argue that many development programmes go awry because the authorities neglect essential development issues. Development must be defined in terms of the provision of basic human needs which include life expectancy, infant mortality, and literacy indicators which reflect the quality of life of the bulk of the population, not just a narrow elite. What they suggest is that the issues neglected by the conventional approach must be addressed if true development is to occur.

This book reviews recent trends in social science analysis in agricultural research (SSAAR), identifying gaps in research & outlining areas of high potential payoff to future SSAAR. Major themes treated in the evolution of theory on the generation & diffusion of agricultural technology since the 1950's are reviewed. The authors construct a framework for priority setting that includes historical, technological & institutional dimensions & provide examples of its application. The increasing complexity facing SSAAR as it responds to concerns over poverty & the environment is highlighted in the conclusions. Over 1000 references are classified by major themes in an annex. This review is intended for agricultural scientists, research planners & policy-makers.

Das Know-how für eine neue umweltschonende Wachstumspolitik ist vorhanden. Wir können heute Solarhäuser bauen, deren Energiekosten fast bei Null liegen, oder Supersparautos, die nicht nur sparsam und sicher, sondern auch komfortabel sind. Der Umweltschutz, von der Wirtschaft immer als Kostenfaktor gefürchtet, ist längst dabei, zum Nutzenfaktor zu werden. Die Autoren machen sich für eine Effizienzrevolution stark, die dazu führen soll, daß wir die Naturgüter mindestens viermal besser nutzen als bisher. Das ist allerdings nur mit Unterstützung der Politik möglich, die endlich aufhören muß, Vergeudung zu subventionieren, und sich zu einer ökologischen Steuerreform entschließen sollte.
