Good Governance' is now a widely discussed term in public discourse in India. Yet the very nature of the term makes it susceptible to varied interpretations. Good Governance: Theories, Challenges and Success Stories is a sincere attempt to demystify and bring clarity to the concept. Drawing upon their vast professional experience, the eminent author duo (of the bestseller ``Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude') discuss the major theories, the processes and challenges to good governance through a combination of academic and practical approach. Supported by examples of real success stories of good governance in India, the book will be of relevance to a wide strata of readership, starting from civil services aspirants to students of Public Administration, Sociology, Political Science etc. It should also hopefully be of interest to NGOs, academicians, social activists, bureaucrats, policy makers etc who have a genuine interest in the finer aspects of policy making and governance.
