Indian Government and Politics is a must-read. The book offers definitive information on topics ranging from the Indian Constitution to local governance and planning and economic development. There is little that has been left out; indeed, it can be safely said that, whatever is absolutely needed is there. One welcome addition is the number of contemporary issues such as environment, gender and ways to strengthen the democratic system that has served us for over 60 years. In some ways, the book is a road map for further consolidation of our democratic traditions. -- The Pioneer A comprehensively researched volume structured as a textbook for undergraduates...acquaints one with the transformation that India's political scenario has undergone in the recent years...This book can prove valuable to those aspiring to sit for the civil services and other competitive exams. -- Sunday Tribune
