ABOUT THE BOOK

This book is a collection of fourteen selected Public Administration Case Studies written by Shri Gyanendra Srivastava IAS (Retd.). 

The case studies have lucidity, substance and depth.  The narratives are strikingly earnest.  These provide fascinating insight into contemporary public administration environment.

The case studies are of immense value to those who are in public service, to those who are teaching and learning public administration as a subject and also to the public at large.

These studies are basically human stories and make engrossing reading.
