Social Development in Independent India: Paths Tread and the Road Ahead? provides an overview of the course of development in India in the past 60 years and also deals with the emerging issues in the 21st century. Thematically arranged in three parts, namely, Theory and Concepts, Challenges of Social Development in India, and Social Pathologies, this book discusses how ?social development? has come to acquire a global significance and how it has the potential to unleash hitherto dormant development forces. The text reviews the existing policies and gives some indication of the current development scenarios, using quantitative as well as qualitative data. Principally written for research students, bureaucrats, politicians and NGOs, this book will appeal to all who have a professional or academic interest in development issues. Social development issues have gained a lot of media and policy attention since the Millennium Summit convened in 2000, wherein the member states of the United Nations had agreed to share the benefits of globalization more fairly and help the world`s poorest countries to achieve a better life by the year 2015. Hence, this book will be of interest also to universities abroad, where development is a focus of study, and also to funding agencies like CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency), or SIDA (Swedish International Development Agency) etc. Printed Pages: 0.
