P.R. Dubhashi (Author)
Synopsis This book contains forty papers on different aspects of public administration including development administration, efficiency and productivity in public administration, administrative functions and functionaries, bureaucracy, training in public administration and administrative reforms. They bear the indelible imprint of the author’s wide experience and deep scholarship. They bring to bear an integrated perspective on the problems of public administration. The papers included in the book contain many suggestions for administrative reforms which are particularly relevant today when we are much concerned about the fast deteriorating standards of public administration and consequently of public life of special interest is the section on bureaucracy, wherein the author has delineated the role of bureaucrats and assessed their performance. He has also examined and analysed the institution of civil service and its relevance in the modern context of social and political lives with particular reference to conditions in post-Independence India. He has entered a strong plea for strengthening training facilities in public administration, so as to pave the way for an efficient, dynamic democratic state in India. The book will be found useful both by students and practitioners of public administration.
