This book in two volumes is a developmental discourse for 'mountain perspective development'. The book unfolds the journey of the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand since its inception and covers the journey of fifteen years and beyond. Twenty different dimensions with exhaustive time series and cross section data, critical analysis and policy asks by experts give a special place to this book for 'Himalayan model of development'. The volumes will act as ready references for policymakers, bureaucrats, scientists, academicians, researchers and students not only for the state but also for all the Himalayan states of the country and abroad.

The common characteristics and challenges of Himalayan region and the distinction from plain region as often cited by the authors create a strong platform for a focused dialogue towards separate policy of development for 'The Himalayan States of India' and sets 'An Agenda of Sustainable Development for the Himalayan states ' through the course of action for Uttarakhand .
