ABOUT THE BOOK:
Development has been much more than a mere socioeconomic construct. As the literature on development has proliferated, exchange of ideas among those who approach development from different perspectives, disciplines and professions has become more elastic. The volume Development Studies in India makes a modest attempt to critically examine the book view and field view of development. The chapters contributed by scholars and development experts across disciplines tend to sensitize the learner with the development discourse from a multi-disciplinary perspective. A volume of this kind will certainly be of interest to those engaged in the dialogue on development.
