Redefining Development-An Alternative Paradigm

Redefining Development An Alternative Paradigm Bagaram Tulpule THE only model of development placed before us today is the one represented by what are called the 'developed' or industrialised countries.

Perhaps the very size and duration of the conflict deterred scholars from launching upon a detailed exploration of it. Ultimately, it was a foreign researcher who undertook the daunting task and it is to his credit that he has done such a thorough job of it.
