The book is addressed to the students studying in undergraduate courses in economics at GGSIP UNIVERSITY, Delhi, and similar other UG courses in economics at other state and private universities.
The present book is unique in many ways. Some of these as identified by a group of students who were approached for a pre-publication sampling test could be summarised as follows:
The language, style and presentation make the book student-friendly
- The overall presentation of the book reflects the use of state of art technology in layout and overall formatting. This develops a sense of seriousness and authenticity about the richness of subject matter both among the author and the publisher.
- As a student juggles through the pages of contents a spirit of confidence envelopes her or him. His sense of expectations and anticipations keeps rising. The book does not disappoint the reader.
- A lot of research has gone into selection of subject matter. A good textbook does not leave the burden of irrelevant and unnecessary reading material on him. And similarly it should ensure the student that nothing that is required is left out.
- The book has more than 1,400 highlighted items to facilitate quick revision.
- The book is well illustrated by nearly 57 tables & 127 figures.
- The book contain 106 very short questions, 80 short questions & 62 questions.
- Every topic discussed in the book passes the test of reasoning and logic.
- An exhaustive stock of information is available in Internet. We have been conscious of this fact all along! We have tried not to duplicate or replicate this effort.
