About the Book :

In an era when countries across the globe are obsessed with development, the issue of ensuring sustainable growth is drawing prime attention of the development experts, academicians, researchers and policy-makers. The north-eastern region of India is recognized to be geographically isolated, densely administered, sparsely populated and least developed as compared to other states of this country. The unattended issues and problems as experienced by this region in recent past are being accumulated, multi-layered and have become multifarious. The kind of developmental dynamics prevailing in the region is very delicate which may explode anytime from now, if not tackled carefully. In this direction, this edited volume makes a concerted effort to explore some of the key areas of concern in the context of attaining the long cherished goal of ensuring sustainable growth in North-East India. This book is expected to be useful for development planners, researchers and social science scholars of North-East India.
