Clinical Approach to Rural Development

E.D. Setty (Author)
Synopsis Rural development is a generic concept, subsuming several fields of development that fall under economic development, democratic growth and social justice. There have been several scores of books on this subject. The present volume emphasizing clinical approach spells out the significant factors that the planner, the organizer, the administrator and the field worker has to take care of and be sensitive in understanding people, their needs and problems and working with them for their advancement and welfare. There is no straight highway to rural development. Depending upon the ethnicity and subculture within the fold of Indian ethos, one may have to charter in multiple ways, but may remember and apply the clinical approach irrespective of the programmes focused upon. The planners, administrators, organizers and field workers, the teaching and the training community concerned with the working in the field of rural development would find this volume interesting and useful.
