Indian Government and Politics will serve as a standard textbook for undergraduate students of Political Science and Public Administration. It is also an incisive manual for the candidates appearing for various UPSC and civil service examinations, besides being invaluable for students and researchers of political science in general, and post-colonial contemporary Indian politics in particular.

The book explains the complexities of the Indian political process and its effects on the constitutional institutions of India. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, it takes a fresh look at the socio-political and economic scenario of contemporary India and unearths new areas of inquiry by posing pertinent questions on the nature of Indian politics. The strength of the book lies in its focused content, which thoroughly analyses the political happenings in India and studies how the political institutions have emerged and changed since the end of colonial rule in the country.

The highlights of this book include discussions on:

- genesis of the Indian Constitution;

- major constitutional offices of India;

- federalism;

- the legislature, executive and judiciary;

- planning and economic development;

- party system, Panchayati Raj and Indian administration; and

- contemporary issues in Indian politics and governance

This user-friendly textbook also contains carefully selected model questions for each chapter.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Indian Government and Politics is a must-read. The book offers definitive information on topics ranging from the Indian Constitution to local governance and planning and economic development. There is little that has been left out; indeed, it can be safely said that, whatever is absolutely needed is there. One welcome addition is the number of contemporary issues such as environment, gender and ways to strengthen the democratic system that has served us for over 60 years. In some ways, the book is a road map for further consolidation of our democratic traditions.

-- The Pioneer

A comprehensively researched volume structured as a textbook for undergraduates...acquaints one with the transformation that India's political scenario has undergone in the recent years...This book can prove valuable to those aspiring to sit for the civil services and other competitive exams.
