About the author (1998)

Few foreign journalists have travelled to more villages or remote districts than John Stackhouse. "The Globe and Mail's development issues reporter, Stackhouse has been based in New Delhi since 1992, but has spent much of his time living with poor farmers, fisherman, lepers and slum-dwellers, travelling by third-class rail through India or by boat through Borneo. He has won three National Newspaper Awards, a National Magazine Award and an Amnesty International prize for foreign reporting. This is his first book.
