Human development is a relative concept and it needs to be understood from an interdisciplinary perspective. It includes widening of choices, expansion of freedom and fulfillment of human rights. The human development index (HDI) in the UNDP’s Human Development Report (HDR) considers literacy rate, life expectancy at birth along with GDP per head for the purpose. It is important to understand an appropriate methodology for measuring human development and its linkage with economic development. 

This book addresses specific problems and issues pertaining to human development. The main themes which the book covers include theoretical issues in human development, measurement, determinants and various dimensions and strategies for sustainable human development.
