It describes the visions, experiments, struggles and aspirations of several social movements and voluntary organizations from India and other parts of the world which are striving to realize new modes of human development in various fields?education, religion, human rights, tribal development and community development. The author shows how these movements and organizations touch on many key contemporary issues?self-development, reconstitution of public space and reconstruction of government.
