About the author

J.K. Khanna

The author has M.A., Ph.D. (Pol. Science), and M.Lib. Sc., Ph.D. (Library Science) to his credit. S.R.Ranganathan who created men out of clay has also divine eyes. Discerning the real mettle of the author, he wrote to the latter, immediately before his death, to stay in the profession and work for its elevation. In Ranganathan's words: For the last 10 years I had been observing the rapid degeneration in the profssion. It is for a person like you to take off the coat as I did my self in my younger days and work hard to put the profession on the right rails. Influenced by the same advise of the Philosopher ----King (Ranganathan ), the author dropped the very idea of switching over of the teaching of Political Science, and re-dedicated himself to the profession. By burning mid-night-oil, he has enriched the profession. He authorship spans numerous research papers and highly appreciated 8 books in India and abroad.
