The involvement of anthropology in human development is universally popular. The anthropological perspectives on human development define anthropology as a holistic approach, which is both diachronic and synchronic. It consists of all aspects of people’s social, economic, and cultural life including the social habits of the human population. Anthropological work provides a good sense of the wealth of human societies, and of the importance of their physio-cultural diversity. The diverse ways of anthropological perspectives encourage a sustainable people-oriented approach to all the developmental aspects of life while accepting considerable variations from one community to another.

The present volume encapsulates various dimensions of anthropological researches, which are of great concern for human development. This volume will also open new vistas of understanding and insights into the human development through variegated works of anthropology. Besides anthropologists, this work will be of great interest to other social scientists, bureaucrats, and development practitioners.
