The book traces the history of public administration in India from the ancient times to the current practices. It is based on the insights gained by an administrator in more than 35 years of experience at the state, national and international levels. Written in jargon-free lan- guage in an easy and direct style, this book avoids heoretical discussion or examination of issues on ideological grounds. It will suit the needs of both the layperson and the student as it is an informative down- to-earth book on administration in India. It will serve as a good guide to aspirants and entrants to the civil services, to whom, in the beginning, government and administration appear formidable and inhibiting. Central and state training institutions, where public administration is sought to be taught in a practical way, will also find the book handy.Padma Ramachandran is currently Vice-Chancellor, M.S.
