The five-volume series on 'Regional Development: Theory and Practice' is a festschrift dedicated to Professor R. P. Misra, a distinguished scholar, widely recognized as one of the pioneers who initiated and promoted Regional Planning studies in India. This five-volume series, with over one hundred research papers on different aspects of regional development, is a fitting tribute to the scholar who spent much of his life time thinking, researching and writing about development in general and regional development in particular. These five volumes, each dealing with a specific aspect of regional development, Vol. 1 Concept of Regional Development, Vol. 2 Measuring Development, Vol. 3 Development Patterns and Structures, Vol. 4 Development Policies, and Vol. 5 Development Challenges Each of the five volumes begins with an introduction, which is unique in the sense that this is not merely an introduction to the contributions contained in the volume but also talks of the theory of regional development, contemporary development in the discipline and the contrarian views expressed by various academics and policy-makers. Another significant aspect of these introductions is the global view and a comparative scenario of the developed, developing and under-developed economies of the world, that the editors have kept in view, in a debate seeking an universal theory of regional development. Regions are specifics and often unique and “regional development implies focusing on the assets of the territory, its potential and constraints”. Printed Pages: In 5 Volumes.
