Description About The Author:- With active grassroots presence, Dr N Bhaskara Rao has unique background to write this book. Starting as an activist in electoral politics, he studied at two Indian and two USA universities. His 1967 book on politics of leadership was foremost on the subject. He ventured into poll surveys nationally more than 35 years ago and pioneered the methodology. He also had distinguished background of scaling up sample surveys in India in early 1970s. As an applied social researcher he had several path-breaking evaluation studies to his credit. He is founder of more than half a dozen premier research and academic outfits. He expanded ORG into a national outfit and launched media research and poll surveys first time. Dr. Rao held short term assignments with World Bank and ADB and pioneered 'social Audit' of public services in India (1991 1997). Studies in futures is one of his forte ('India 2020' in 1987). He has been actively involved in the national movement for right to information and electoral and judicial reforms.Contents:- Contents # Foreword: by Dr. S.Y.
