Book Description
The contributors to this important volume adopt a holistic approach to understanding rural livelihood systems. They maintain that a livelihood system embraces not just the economic conditions for physical subsistence, but all the elements that provide material continuity and cultural meaning to the life of a family or a community. In this framework, the contributors explore and analyse a diverse range of rural livelihood systems based on fieldwork in a variety of contexts.

Highlighting the inner coherence of these systems and the survival strategies of rural families, the contributors illustrate the multiplicity and flexibility of livelihood strategies. Among the distinguishing features of this volume are:
- Investigates the relationship between rural livelihood systems and natural resource management.
- Proposes an innovative approach?titled RLS Mandala?for a holistic investigation into rural livelihood systems and strategies.
- Links economic reforms at a macro level with rural economics at the household level.
- Addresses a number of other pertinent issues including village leadership, occupational diversification, technology management, and non-economic motivators for resource management.
