  • Description

    Public Administration as a discipline lid to be concerned earlier about its identity. Most textbooks have dealt with the subject from this traditional point of view. Under the impact of powerful domestic and international forces and new conceptualisations of administrative reality, the discipline today is more concerned about explaining diversity, complexity and interactivity. Globalisation and opening up of the economy is a reality now. The earlier role of exclusivity is no longer being accorded to the state and government. In a complex state-society relational situation, the focus has been shifting more and more toward society. Networking with other organisations, rather than exclusivity of government, is what is happening in the practising world of governance. There are new phrases being coined to characterise the new public administration. The "New Public Management", "Reinventing Government", Enterpreneurial Government" are some of the new concepts being introduced in the subject to connote the present and evolving scenario of public management. This book covers all these and many other new themes of contemporary importance.

    BHAGWAT GITA FOR PUBLIC ADMINSTRATION PREPARATION

    Apart from its paper quality every aspect of the book is really awesome.I completed the book after completing public administration by M.Laxmikant.It is quite easily understandable.Sometimes direct quotes appear in the examination from this book.each and every candidate who prepare for public administration refers this book.so think twice grab it.


    Flipkart is a heaven for books.without flipkart it is nearly impossible to collect all books.

    Honestly speaking the book is not pirated. The quality of paper is just like that. Infact all the book published by JBD is like this only. I think flipkart is not responsible for this.Please go to JBD and one will understand why it is like that only.

    Awesome Content but Substandard print quality!

    This book, is undoubtedly the bible for Pub Ad and also Flipkart has the fastest delivery service ..... But by the quality of the book, it resembles a Xerox Copy with substandard quality pages....I don't even know if its a geniune copy....Flipkart should make a note of this....

    A Worth Reading book for Pub Ad Optionals

    First thanks for flipkart for prompt and fast delivery.

    This is a very basic and beginner book and must read if your option is Public administration.
    You dont need to read end to end, read smart and wisely based on the syllabus..

    This book should be used as reference for paper 1 of public administration.

    Few chapters have been explained very well..

    Worth the buy and must read
