This is a well-integrated and comprehensive textbook of political science primarily meant for undergraduate students of Indian universities. The book is critical as well as factual and presents a consistent thesis that the state exists for the benefit of the individual and not the individualfor the State. It should be of great help to students, teachers and the general reader who is interested in a well-written and modern introduction to politics.
A. Appadorai is at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
