Regional (sub-national) development is increasingly viewed as an important and versatile tool of homogenizing the economy and conscientizing the people for greater participation in development effort. While the methodology and planning are widely known among academics and theoreticians, some of the terms used are too technical for others. An attempt has, therefore, been made in this volume to select 400 more frequently used terms and give their meaning in simple English. The volume will be useful not only to officials but also to college and university students.
