Public Policy: Concept, Theory and Practice

Bidyut Chakrabarty (Author) Prakash Chand (Author)

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.
