Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The expansion of cities results in the forced displacement of large numbers of people, which in turn, creates social tensions within families and communities. Those who are affected live under conditions of deprivation and hardship. It impacts their behavior and social structure. This book identifies, from an Indian perspective, the effects of urban displacement on existing communities. The networks of local social groups have been analyzed using the context of social conflicts between urban organizations and people of different castes and classes. The study also focuses on the process of land acquisition, payment of compensation, and its utilization. The areas of resettlement cover procurement of alternative land, social obligations, occupational change, movement, relocation, and rehabilitation. India's governmental resettlement and rehabilitation policies have been reviewed along with their implications. This sociological perspective on urban displacement will inspire future dialogue on approaches to urban development.
