1 - 2 weeks availability
This book argues that despite constitutional provisions and directives, India's record on human development has been woefully inadequate. The author argues that the state's failure is due to entrenched traditional hierarchical values of superordination and subordination in both the social and administrative systems. He highlights the dysfunctional systemic tendencies in the implementation of policies and programmes and provides a unique formulation for a creative interaction between the people and the state in promoting human development.
