A Dictionary of Public Administration is the first work of its kind in India as well as perhaps in the Third World. It covers the terms, concepts, theories and paradigms of public administration. Each term is defined and explained concisely but clearly. While a large number of entries are discussed in a few lines, many of them are very comprehensively treated, which is usually characteristic of an encyclopedia. The dictionary deals with the theory of public administration in all its sub-fields like administrative theory, personnell administration, financial administration, comparative public administration, administrative law and public policy. It goes beyond and includes the institutions and processes of Indian administration as well. All these features make this an indispensable volume for students and teachers of public administration as well as policy planners and analysts.
