1 Pranab Kumar Das (Ed.) & Dilip Mookherjee (Frwd)
Decentralisation, Governance and Development: An Indian Perspective
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789386296887; Hardcover; New; New; 
India believed it could take development closer to its people, make the government more accountable, and empower women and oppressed communities through decentralisation—the provision of political and financial autonomy at the local level through the three-tier Panchayati Raj structure.Fifteen years after the 73rd and 74th Amendments that brought in this innovation, what is the performance of the local government in India? Decentralisation, Governance and Development provides a comprehensive assessment that answers this question.Drawing from the examples of the two states where decentralisation has been most successful—Kerala and West Bengal—this volume explores the causes and effects of failures in implementation and issues of governance. These essays by scholars from diverse disciplines, as well as policymakers and practitioners, will equip readers with both a theoretical understanding of the issues concerning local government, and the practical problems of designing and implementing policy framework in the field.This book will be useful to students and scholars of development studies, economics, political science and sociology, and public servants and policymakers.

3 Dilip Mookherjee
Market Institutions, Governance, and Development
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 019568107X / 9780195681079; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This collection of essays exemplifies the recent trend in micro-development economics, where the source of underdevelopment problems is related to deficiencies in underlying institutions and distribution of assets: contract enforcement mechanisms, information systems, inequality of land and education, and limited government accountability. The first part of the volume is devoted to market failures and under-development, including issues such as Keynesian effective demand problems, credit market imperfections, inequality in land and human capital, contractual distortions in tenancy, and marketing and performance incentives. In the second part the author analyses problems in governance in the context of tax evasion, bureaucratic corruption, fiscal decentralization and delivery of public services. 019676
