A Dictionary Of Public Administration is the first book in India and most definitely in the Third World, which provides a thorough coverage of all the different domains of public administration.
Maheshwari’s text is the result of over thirty five years of service in the field of public administration, combined with painstaking research conducted at the Indian Institute of Public Administration, and the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library.
Students, teachers, and people who are directly involved in public administration, will find this text an indispensable resource. The text is organized in alphabetical order, with terms and concepts listed under each letter. Each term listed in the book is well defined and clearly explained. Since the text covers a vast array of entries, many of them are discussed in a few lines, albeit very concisely, which is characteristic of encyclopedias.
A Dictionary Of Public Administration provides detailed coverage of terms, theories, paradigms, and concepts of public administration. In terms of theory, Maheshwari provides a comprehensive coverage of sub fields such as Administrative Theory, Financial Administration, Personnel Administration, Administrative Law, Comparative Public Administration, and the Processes Involved in Indian Administration. For instance, readers can learn about the types of Legitimate Authority, the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946, the Attorney General of India, Civil Service Neutrality, Ecofeminism, Habeas Corpus, Laws in Administration, the Panchayat, Social Darwinism, and many more theories, concepts, and terms. The book also includes Indian terms like Adalat, Baboo, Chauki, Choti Hazri, Firangi, Harijan, and many others.
