Purusottam Nayak

Description

In one of the first detailed accounts of human development in North-East India, scholars from various disciplines discuss the policy perspectives on growth, poverty, and human development. While doing so they highlight the region's performance viz-à-viz other regions in terms of human development indicators over the last few decades. Arranged thematically, the essays analyse issues relating to Human Development Index (HDI), growth and development priorities at the all-India level, and trends in the North East. Well-known development experts collectively seek to find the causes for the mismatch between poor growth and high HDI in the region. Emphasizing the immediate requirement for a growth-promoting strategy to avoid the possibility of social tension due to this imbalance, the volume addresses a number of socioeconomic and political issues. Focusing on each North-Eastern state individually, the book provides unique insights into the development process and trends in the region.
