When millions lags behind access to food, water, sanitation, health care etc., the role and responsibility of the state and there by bureaucracy increases, irrespective of the fact that whether they are taking up this responsibility or not. This demands a change in the mindset of the bureaucratic order who are the agents of development and social change in every society. The present book is one critically analysing the role of higher bureaucracy as an agent of social change in the era of liberalisation and globalisation. Issues related to administration, corruption, environment, sustainable development, privatisation of services and human rights forms the core of the book.Printed Pages: 272.
