Globalisation and Rural Development: Understanding New Development Paradigm

M C Behera (Editor)
Synopsis Pursuit on rural development in India, following ever changing perspectives on international development discourse, has been an interminable process right from the fifties of the last century when it began with a stress on community development approach. Not surprisingly then the process of globalisation in recent years has brought about a shifting emphasis on rural development paradigm along with changing perspectives on international development discourse that emphasises on 'participatory and sustainable development' and thereby 'enlarging people's choices'. Obviously, the context to explore is rural development as policy and practices, and also as a process vis-a-vis globalisation. Keeping in the above line of thinking, the papers included in this volume initiate a comprehensive exploration of the strategies of rural development in India drawing upon field experiences on different issues. Broadly, the strength of the volume emanates from the analysis of the potentials and challenges of development in the process of globalisation. Its essence lies in focusing attention to the distinct analytical issues and empirical findings in the realm of strategy formulation and policy-making in the context of globalisation and development. No doubt, the book will come handy among the students of development studies and development practitioners in general and in the country in particular to understand the content of development in the context of globalisation in a right perspective.
