Public Policy and Citizenship: Battling Managerialism in India provides a thought-provoking study of managerialism and neoliberalism, two inherent but incoherent theoretical discourses that play important roles in public policy making in the modern world. It establishes on a firm note that the managerialist application of public policies founded on neoliberalist terms often undermine the idea of citizenship as an element without which modern democracy is unimaginable.
The discussion revolves around Indian public policy on health, agriculture, and education with a range of contemporary sources and international examples, keeping in perspective the questions that managerialism and neoliberalism necessitate in the philosophy of social sciences and political philosophy.
