Dr. Akhtar Hameed Khan - Pioneer of Microcredit & Guru of Rural Development is a collection of ten articles and two poems on Dr. A.H. Khan - a world renowned social scientist and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee. Dr. Khan was a guru of rural development, pioneer of microfinance and recipient of many prestigious awards. He led the way in rural development and poverty alleviation. Dr. A.H. Khan was founder of two world-famous institutions, i.e. Bangladesh (previously Pakistan) Academy for Rural Development (BARD) and Orangi Pilot Project (OPP). Dr. Khan was also recognized by many academics, world leaders and global organizations, such as the World Bank, for his contributions to poverty alleviation. Dr. Khan passed away on October 09, 1999, and per his will, he was laid to rest on the premises of the OPP. In honor of this great social scientist, his nephew, scholar and historian Nasim Yousaf, has published this work as a tribute to Dr. A.H. Khan on his 13th death anniversary. This compilation of pieces highlights Dr. Khan's work and achievements. This work contains articles authored by well-respected and illustrious scholars in their field and includes poems from an expert on rural development. The articles also include statements and views of a number of prominent and learned persons on Dr. Khan. These articles contribute to the enrichment of scholarship in the fields of microcredit, rural development, poverty alleviation and self-reliance based development. The author and compiler, Nasim Yousaf, is a recognized historian and his works have been published globally in various mediums. Additional contributions have been included from the following distinguished persons: Professor Norman Uphoff of Cornell University, Professor Emeritus George H. Axinn of Michigan State University and Akbar Khan, son of Dr. Khan. This work includes bios of the author and contributors as well as information on Dr. Khan's children. Sources, where available, are included within or at the end of each article.
