Introduction to Development Studies

B.K. Pattanaik (Author)

Introduction to Development Studies presents a balanced mix of economic, social, political, cultural and administrative premises of development and analyses its theoretical and practical dimensions. Through preceding and contemporary examples from developing countries, it provides a holistic understanding of development, effectively demonstrating how it differs from economic growth.

Beginning with development theories, paradigms and actors involved in the development process, this book goes on to explain the concepts of development governance, management, communication and planning. It would prove to be an indispensable companion to students of economics, sociology, political science, public administration, public policy and other social science disciplines.
