For students and scholars of global social development, global leadership, interdisciplinary Asian studies, international and comparative social work, and comparative country studies, Singh (social work and women and gender studies, Loyola U. Chicago) compiles 32 essays that compare social work and social development in the US and India. American and Indian specialists in social work, sociology, theology, philosophy, and women's studies describe programs and policies as understood by different stakeholders, including governments, nonprofits or nongovernmental organizations, and grassroots activists. They address the philosophical and religious roots of social work in India and the complexities of local ideologies; the social development trajectory and its consequences, including planning and processes in urban and rural contexts in the US and India and their outcomes as represented in migration, farming, and environmental crises; approaches and models for children, women, the elderly, and people under criminal jurisdiction in India and the US; the dimensions of holistic well-being from health to mental health in India; and emerging areas, such as terrorism laws, the voluntary sector, and the impact of media on families and social interaction in India.
