A significant amount of research in India focuses predominantly on policy goals and consequences, and less on policy processes. Breaking away from the mould, this collection of essays by Kuldeep Mathur directly addresses the policy process and the part institutions play in policymaking inIndia. Public Policy and Politics in India is thus a critical contribution to the study of public policy in India. The volume brings together some of Mathur's seminal, and otherwise not easily accessible, writings on the emerging field of public policy. It also discusses the dominant discourses inthis area, transitions from one discourse to another, evolution of institutions and how they relate to each other, and, most importantly, how these institutions relate to the socio-political forces in which they are embedded.
