The possible reasons for Kerala's achievements are explored in this detailed ethnography of Nadur village. Household surveys and extensive interviews show a decline in income inequality and an improved quality of life for most villagers despite high unemployment, low incomes, and the persistence of inequalities that redistribution has not overcome. Nadur village has become a better place to live. Land reform, unions, pensions, fair-price food shops, and programs such as school and nursery nutrition, literacy, and aid to former untouchable castes have combined to produce a promising experiment in democratic and egalitarian development that may hold valuable lessons for other Third World peoples.
