Book Description

First Published in 1967, Politics and Government at Home and Abroad presents William A. Robson’s penetrating observations on the basic requirements of democratic politics and government. Divided into two parts the essays cover a wide field. Part I deals with the fundamental questions of political thought such as relation between freedom, equality, and socialism; education and democracy,  and the basic issues of practical government like reform of the British government; and the future of public administration. Part II of the book brings travelogue essays with author’s reflections on India, America, and Russia. This book is an essential read for students and researchers of political science and public administration.
