From Individual to Community brings together a set of papers that provides critical commentaries on various facets of the ongoing process of development. The book addresses issues that concern developing countries?such as globalization, economic growth, rural transformation, gender equality, educational reforms and the Dalit movement?from a multidisciplinary perspective. Based on the theoretical framework of the normative principles, the book evaluates issues that are specifically relevant in the Indian context?rich versus poor, globalization versus sustainable development, and so on. Devoid of any ideological rigidity, this book is an unbiased exposition of the material as well as ideological positioning of globalization, development and change. This book also commemorates the birth centenary of Professor Malcolm Adiseshiah, former Deputy Director General of UNESCO and a Padma Bhushan awardee, who was also founder of Madras Institute of Development Studies.
