|Indian Public Administration and Public Policy (Volume II) is specially aimed at the aspirants of the Civil Services (Main) Examination. It will also be useful for the aspirants of various state services examinations.
This book is strictly aligned with the syllabus of Public Administration prescribed by UPSC. Going along the line of the syllabus, the book deals with all the topics one by one extensively. Having said that, it should be mentioned that there are certain ‘hidden topics’ in the syllabus of Public Administration. These topics may be derived from the existing topics by a senior student, but new students may find difficulty in doing that. It is often seen that UPSC asks questions from this ‘hidden syllabus’ which is not directly mentioned in its syllabus. However, a learned person may very well understand that these ‘hidden topics’ are very much a part of the main syllabus as they are connected to the main syllabus. This book helps in connecting the main topics with the ‘hidden topics’.
The book provides flowcharts, diagrams, and mind maps to facilitate better understanding and retention of the concepts. Written in extremely lucid and simple language, it will serve as a comprehensive for Paper II of Public Administration.
