About the Book :

This book tries to trace the relationship between Gandhian approach to development and social work. Explaining Gandhi's concept of social work and development, it addresses various issues concerning social work education in India, environment, security, bhoodan and gramdan revolution, community development, people's participation, dalit empowerment and value system. The book further takes stock of India's achievements and failures in the last 50 years, and analyses the role of NGOs in development. A critical assessment of Gandhi's constructive work programme also makes part of discussion. The book will be of great interest to social workers and researchers in the field of Gandhian study.
