Annotation:Providing substantial summaries and assessments of works by Amartya Sen, Paul Greenough, Michelle McAlpin, Morgan Maclachlan, and Kathleen Gough, this article compares and evaluates various analyses of the relationship between morality and politics in influencing the distribution and management of resources in South Asia. Appadurai focuses on two concepts in particular, “entitlement” and “enfranchisement,” and argues that these terms can provide new insights on the problems faced by the rural poor of South Asia.
