Print E-mail

An edited version of a lecture delivered at the Washington State University campus in Vancouver, Washington.

58min 41sec - P. Sainath, 25th Feb 05 - pdxjustice Media Productions

The award-winning development reporter and photojournalist, Palagummi Sainath, is India's foremost chronicler of the impact of globalization on the country's rural populations. Described by the Nobel Prize-winner, Amartya Sen as "one of the world's greatest experts on famine and hunger," P. Sainath has worked tirelessly to expose the devastation inflicted on rural farmers and the broader population by the so-called neo-liberal economic reforms. He is author of the best seller, "Everybody Loves a Good Drought: Stories from India's Poorest Districts", a book credited with significant impact on drought management, medical and development programs in rural India. He is currently working as the rural affairs editor of The Hindu.

The lecture was sponsored by the Center for Social and Environmental Justice of Washington State University. pdxjustice Media Productions hopes to make the extended full-length presentation available in the coming weeks. For more information, please visit www.pdxjustice.org.
