In the past many years or so, displacement by development projects has gone on almost untamed under the globalization pressures to meet the demand for land from local and increasingly foreign investors. Focusing on India, this book looks at the complex issue of resettling people who are displaced for the sake of development.
A timely analysis of displacement and resettlement, this book has an appeal beyond South Asian Studies alone. It is of interest to policy makers, planners, administrators, and scholars in the field of resettlement and development studies. The book goes on to highlight the emerging approaches to resettlement that promise a more equitable development outcome.
The book is a valuable addition to the already growing rich literature on development caused forced displacement with special focus on India under a global context. This book will be extremely useful not only for development practitioners and but also for the growing number of post graduate departments in the Social Sciences.
