Jawaharlal Nehru and Indian Administration

Tishyarakshit Chatterjee (Editor) Ramesh Kumar Tiwari (Editor)

This book published in a single volume provides the best and the most important speeches and observations of Jawaharlal Nehru on Indian administration, spanning ,ore than seventeen years of his active political life, as the first Prime Minister of India.

Since the 1920s, he not only interacted closely with the administration in various capacities, but also analyzed the political and administration problems in his writings, speeches and correspondence. Jawaharlal Nehru spoke on a wide range of problems like: 'human aspects of administration', 'administrative reorganisation', 'civil service in the democratic set-up', 'bureaucrtic attitudes', 'functionaries at the lower level', 'civil service rules and procedures', 'democratic decentralization', 'planning and implementation', 'public sector', 'research in public administration'. etc.

His speeches and observations by and large were focused basically to create a administeatiive structure to serve a democratic governance. With this basic tent, he consciously developed a framework to fulfil the needs of a welfare state. For him, the public administration discipline has to be concerned with the entire spectrum of problems relating to the nation's survival and development. He held the view that public is an applied social science discipline. A careful perusal of his addresses provides an excellent framework within which the public administration system in India has to be studied and reformed.

This volume will be of great interest to student and scholars of politics, public administration, modern Indian history and the general reader interested in the development and challenges of Indian administration.
