"The bibliography included covers a good number of theoretical and empirical studies. The book under reference will be found useful by all development professionals and the contributors should be congratulated for their sincere efforts." --Journal of Rural Development "This is a book that evaluates evaluation. . . . This book is primarily addressed to developmental interventions in the NGO sector. Given the major ongoing expansion through the NGO sector, the importance of such PE cannot be overstated." --Indian Review of Books "Vijay Padaki′s volume provides interesting insights and extensive analysis of myriad issues - conceptual and methodological - in respect of design implementation and evaluation of a variety of development interventions and programme evaluations. The focus of the volume is on developing alternative methods for more effective development interventions. The volume would be of immense interest to policy makers, development agencies, programme administrators, activists, NGOs, evaluation researchers and social scientists." --MDI Management Journal "The concerns at the grassroots level in respect of what programme evaluation should seek to achieve have been brought out forcefully in the volume, which should be of interest to agencies that fund development intervention programmes, those implementing them, social scientists and evaluation researchers." --The Hindu Although India′s experience in development is impressive, the available repertoire of methods, tools, and techniques used to assess development programs (both government and nongovernment) are found to be increasingly inadequate, not only by program implementers but also by many evaluators themselves. It is against this background that a group of professionals--administrators, researchers, and change agents--come together to deliberate on the predominant issues in program evaluation in the development context. They identify avenues for exploring alternative methodologies to increase the possibilities of more effective development interventions. A product of this collective effort, Development Intervention and Program Evaluation explores new directions and offers a wealth of information.
