Title Review

A compilation of 37 review papers and analytical studies authored by eminent social scientists from different Indian colleges and Universities—this book draws upon the presentations of a UGC sponsored national seminar, organized at the Department of Sociology, University of Madras, Chennai, India. The included pieces are an academic attempt to analyze the planning and policy making process in India and its impact on poverty alleviation and rural development. In many cases, empirical evidences at micro/regional level have been provided to highlight the realities in areas such as health care, nutrition, women empowerment, poverty alleviation and employment generation in rural parts of the country. The book also examines the nature and extent of people participation in rural development and poverty alleviation programmes.
