    nice formatted book

    the book is written in a style which makes it easy going with the readers, segregated into small chapters of pages ranging from just 1 to 49.... it is extremely easy to prepare notes from the book..... the only con not only with this book but with all the McGraw Hill books is that these books are not updated time to time.... i bought the 18th reprint... most probably printed in late 2012 but the book doesnt have any information, whether the previous year questions or anything else from 2009!!...

    The very best!

    This book is a very easy read and you can go through it very quickly still comprehending and acquiring all that is needed for this section of the mains exam.

    It is even easier to revise and trust me, what you will read from this book will remain with you for a long time as everything is arranged very well and systematically. However I need to add here that I have political science background and the subject is one of my optionals in mains.

    Having said all about the book and confessing that ...

    Great Book....

    The thing is most of us usually study polity just for examination but aren't really interested in it. This book gives all the concepts in simple understandable and objective language. Another thing is that it is to the point, it does not overwhelm you information that you wont be able to remember anyways. It tell you what you need to know.
