The book offers a balanced mix of practical and theoretical aspects of public policy by tracing its evolution in the Indian context and helping to strengthen conceptual articulation.
Development of public policy as a subject of academic study and as a field of practice depends a lot on the prevalent socio-economic and political milieu. Public Policy: Concept, Theory and Practice highlights the critical aspects of public policy making and its implementation by contextualizing it in the Indian historical and modern-day perspective.
Filling the existing content gap due to non-availability of comprehensive textbooks on the subject, this book makes the ideas and concepts easily intelligible for everybody. Students pursuing graduate and postgraduate courses in Political Science, Public Administration and civil services and UGC NET aspirants will find this book immensely useful.
