Description - A Psychological Strategy for Alternative Human Development by Prayag Mehta

According to the author, the failure of 'development' is due to the entrenched traditional hierarchical values of superordination and subordination in both the social and administrative systems. He discusses India's performance in the area of human development; the behavioural tendencies of state functionaries; the historical antecedents of political processes and administrative behaviour; the need for structural and behavioural changes and public activism; and the processes requried to democratise human development. Finally, Dr. Mehta suggests an alternatie psychological strategy for enhancing selfesteem, personal efficacy, capability and empowerment in order to accelerate economic and social development in the country. Based on fresh theoretical formulations, the book provides an unique formulation for a creative interaction between the people and the state in promoting human development.
