Local Governance gains prominence in the recent decades as it becomes a movement in the world. Contextually it is so imprest to empower the poor and marginalised as globalization of economy is going to exclude many such segments. As globalization, decentralisation is also a historical process. The present monograph is giving a synoptic view of governance and development process at grassroots in China and India. In both countries initiatives have been taken to strengthen the grassroots institutions. In China local bodies have been created through an executive order but powers and resources have been given substantially whereas in India local bodies have been created through Constitutional Amendments. Yet powers and resources have not been given excepting Kerala. Hence, a comparative analysis is made between a local governance unit in Jiangsu province in China and Gram Panchayat in Kerala in India. How village life is organized and how people are engaged in governance and development have been captured in this monograph. Printed Pages: 150.
