Panchayati Raj-Gandhian Perspective
This book is an outcome of the endeavour of Gandhian scholars to study the various facets of PRIs from Gandhian Perspective. This book provides a spectrum treatment to the different theoretical and conceptual aspects of the subjects and a framework for future rural development, based on people’s participation as a quintessential component of its administration. The book is a well-documented and comprehensive account of Gandhian view point in regard to village self -management. The contributors to this volume are well known Gandhian scholars embracing diverse disciplines. The book is intended to cater to a wide range of people including policy makers, administrators, social workers and students of Rural Sociology and Political Science. It will, one hopes, also stimulate innovative thinking and practice in the domain of rural development and its administration and management.
