ABSTRACT
The article profiles economist Walter C. Neale. One of Terry's strengths as a scholar is his utter dedication to purity and clarity of language. Terry's scholarly work falls into three overlapping categories and contains a few important oddments. The three categories are studies of India, institutionalism, and economic history. His work on India begins with his dissertation, which was published, in a time when such was rare, by Yale University Press as "Economic Change in Rural India." This study of land tenure and reform in Uttar Pradesh has never been surpassed as a treatment of the interaction between British attempts to restructure landholding in rural India and rural India's tenacious institutions. His writings on India have continued to illuminate crucial aspects of economic, political, and social change in rural India. A particular focus has been the manner in which national development policies such as community development and pachayati raj have influenced, and been influenced by, village institutions and politics. It is reported that Neale is also a recipient of the Veblen-Commons Award for 1989.
