Book Description Academic Foundation, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. Karnataka was founded 50 years ago and in those decades has embodied the challenges and contradictions that are faced by the rest of India?spectacular technology-led growth in Bangalore tempered with an abiding sense of the city`s ungovernability, enduring gender inequity and regional disparities, and a visibly increasing gap between urban and rural areas. Yet, Karnataka is also increasingly being seen as a model of development. Bangalore`s metamorphosis from a noun to a verb is the archetypical symbol of an India "unbound", and Karnataka`s pioneering experiment with Panchayati Raj reform under the Hegde government in the 1980`s sparked the 73rd amendment to the Indian Constitution and the consequent and continuing wave of devolutions in finance and power to panchayats. This emphasis on technology-led growth coupled with local government reform is, at least in theory, a singularly innovative strategy to address the challenge of generating growth with equity and can be described as the "Karnataka Model" of development. This volume brings together contributions from leading national and international scholars to examine this model of development in detail. It covers politics and policy, civil society and governance, and a wide range of sectoral perspectives and interventions. It highlights the many challenges that confront Karnataka as it enters the second half century of its existence as an Indian state. The analysis and perspectives in the volume, and the lessons that can be learned from the Karnataka experience, will be useful to students, researchers and policy makers in India and across the world.
