Aimed to reach to the poorer sections, they have tried to integrate different types of services to cater a variety of needs. It is this phenomena in its varied dimensions which the editors of this encyclopaedia had tried to explore. They have provided an objective critique of the contradictions and consequences of the development and disparities. There are some definite linkages between development and disparities. Tackling as it does varies concerns which are of growing importance in most developing countries, the collection in this encyclopaedia is of thought provoking critical reviews/papers/articles from India and abroad which would appeal to a wide range of readers. The encyclopaedia encompasses a wide range of content and approaches in its admit and as such it is expected to be of much interest to a vast spectrum of scholars.
