Human Development and Disparities : Issues and Concerns for Northeast India

"The idea of development, particularly in the context of India, demands more nuanced engagement with its various dimensions. Though India has witnessed spectacular growth for a considerable period of time, it also experienced an uneven developmental journey. The disparity of development is nowhere more evident than in Northeastern part of the country. Northeastern states, for various reasons, have been denied the attention they deserved. For decades, these states have been left behind from the mainstream developmental discourse and still face challenges that impede the development of the area.

This incisive book takes a fresh look at the probelms that these states face today and explores the causes of prolonged asymmetrical development, in comparision to other parts of the county. With contributions from eminent scholars, researchers and development experts, this book would give a new perspective to the development and the deprivation of Northeast India."
