This book, for the first time, presents an authentic assessment and presentation of the human development and security challenges faced by districts of the country that have a high concentration of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. 

Countering Naxalism with Development: Challenges of Social Justice and State Security is a compilation of background papers by a group of profoundly knowledgeable and experienced persons commonly known as the Expert Group. The various chapters of the book discuss how the law and order issues of the situation are inextricably intertwined with the development problems faced by the marginalised social groups of some 200 districts in the country affected by Naxalism.
