Drs. Gosney and Hughes offer a robust examination of HRD and provide a methodology for critical thinking to better understand the theories and assumptions of the field.

"Rao's account has a more Indian focus. His book enhances our understanding of the important role of human resource development (HRD) in order to optimise our outputs at every stage through an organised system of management training at the individual, organisational and national level. . . . The scope of the book is vast and varied. . . . [A] well documented account." --Business World "One cannot but applaud Prof. Rao's work. If you are looking for a book which addresses recruitment, renumeration and retention practices, this is not the book for you. This book gives a very broad definition of HRD: "Creating conditions that enable people to get the best out of themselves and their lives". And therein lies a tale, which Prof Rao tells with authority and conviction.... This book reaches out primarily to management scholars, policy-makers and development professionals. For this audience, the book is a must-read. And it would also be unwise to dismiss the work as having no relevance to a practicing professional.... The book is unusual and innovative because it takes a giant leap from the traditional corporate scope of HRD to a wide international canvas.... This book in terms of concepts, scope, relevance and research is like champagne." --Business Line Human resource development (HRD) is crucial for the progress of a nation and for alleviating poverty. Countries that have developed their people by investing in education, health, and science and technology have achieved considerable success, therefore, governments must accord the highest priority to this area. Based on this premise, Human Resources Development examines the experiences of both developing and developed nations. Author T. V. Rao identifies critical areas and important target groups for HRD interventions and discusses a variety of approaches for developing human resources at the national level. He highlights the interdependent and interrelated nature of HRD variables, strategies, and processes and argues for an integrated and coordinated approach, while also exploring evidence linking HRD variables with economic development variables. Researchers and scholars in human resources development, personnel management, management studies, development studies, and policy studies will appreciate this book's grounded approach.
