Interrogating Development is simultaneously an impassioned critique of a development process that leaves so many victims in its wake, and a rigorously empirical account of the causes and magnitude of that victimisation.
This book is an endeavour to comprehend the complex relationship between state-sponsored development projects and consequent massive displacement of population in North-East India in general and Assam in particular. In the absence of a detailed study till now this study is likely to be the first of its kind to attempt at understanding the problem in a detailed manner.
[This book is] an attempt to document the displacement caused by the various developmental and other projects in the North East, and the responses from the various quarters to such displacement. Hussain achieves this purpose quite well….recommended reading for all who are concerned about the costs of development, particularly government officials and politicians at all levels.
The book is certainly a treasure for teachers and students in social work to learn about the displacement issues and popular resistance in North East India. It can be used in teaching subjects such as social problems, community organization and of marginalized populations, development issues and social planning. The book will prove invaluable for sociologists, environmentalists, political scientists, policy makers, development workers, NGOs, social activists, researchers and human rights workers.
