Terrorism, Insurgencies and Counterinsurgency Operations
N. C. Asthana IPSAnjali Nirmal
It presents an exhaustive analysis of terrorism in Kashmir, the North-Eastern states and Punjab besides left-wing terrorism. We find a revealing expose of the machinations of the ISI and the threat of pan-Islamic fundamentalism. The authors show that ad hoc responses in the nature of fire-fighting do not lead us anywhere. That is why, in spite of having killed thousands of terrorism that deals and arrested several times more, we are still nowhere near controlling terrorism that defines a political, police or military solution. Here the authors develop a comprehensive strategy for counterinsurgency, followed by an enunciation of the crucial tactical concepts that will ensure victory in our war against terrorism. ..more

Awareness of Human Rights in Adolescents
Nivedita Paul
The objective of the book is to bring forth the awareness of human rights amongst the adolescents who are the future citizens of the Indian society. It is indeed the adolescents who will create and decide what is the actual value of these rights. With the awareness of their fundamental and human rights are the adolescents aware of their duties, too? This book is on to find out whether adolescents are really aware of their human rights and if they are aware how much they are adjusted in the society with regard to their culture and socio-economic status. It was accepted worldwide that promotion of human rights is the only way to world peace. So almost all countries framed laws to ensure and protect human rights of their citizens. Though next world war did not occur yet the target of peace could not be achieved within the territories of various countries. Worldwise terrorism has added fuel to this fire-destructive situation. This has proved that law or constitution alone can not protect the human rights of citizens. Now educationists have given a solution to this problem. They have suggested that human rights education might protect human rights of citizens all over the world. But this target can be achieved when human rights education becomes a compulsory part and parcel of B.Ed./M.Ed. and school curriculum. This book will be of special interest to non-governmental organisations, bureaucrats, sociologists and educationists, human rights activists and those general readers who wish to understand and be aware of wide ranging implications of Human Rights.  ..more

Administrative Reforms and Good Governance
Janak Singh Meena
The year 1858 was a landmark in India’s 1107 as the political power was legally transferred to the British Crown from the hands of the East India Company. The first task of the new rule was, to appoint, Rickett to examine the then prevalent administrative system of India. Ricketts report, called “Report on Civil Establishments and Salaries” was submitted in 1866. The Department of Administrative Reforms was set up in March 1964 and was located in the Ministry of Home Affairs. It now operates on a wider area than before and seeks to effect improvement in administration on a large scale by shifting emphasis from mere economy and routine office procedures to administrative reforms in broader sense. The Government appointed a high-power Administrative Reform Commission (ARC) in 1966, with Morarji Desai as its chairman and on his becoming Deputy Prime Minister, K. Hanumanthaiya, took over from him. The Commission had submitted 20 reports making over 500 recommendations. The Second Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) was constituted on 31.08,2005, as a Commission of Inquiry, under the Chairmanship of Veerappa Moily for preparing a detailed blueprint for revamping the public administrative system. This book is mainly focused on the impact of Politico-governmental changes on administrative system such as : • Administrative Reforms in India during 1991-2015 • Bureaucratic Reforms at Grass root level • Concept of Minimum Government and Maximum Governance • Human Trafficking in Rajasthan: Recent Surge and Administrative Loopholes • e-governance way to Good Governance • Untold Stories of Corruption in Janani Suraksha Yojana • Digital India: New Avenues to e-Governance • New Dimensions of Urbanizations in India : The Smart City – Concept & Challenges • The Participation of People and their Role in Good Governance • The Public Service Guarantee Acts and Time Bound Delivery System, etc. ..more

Rethinking Gender Equality
Anil Kumar Singh Jha
Indian women are born into a socio-cultural fabric steeped in inequality and discrimination. Women are forced to accept their suppression of freedom and lowering of human dignity as a fait accompli. Bridging the gap between an ideology of equality and a reality in which women are discriminated is the need of hour. Rethinking Gender Equality provides a critical analysis of existing gender inequality in Indian society. The book is a humble endeavour to decipher the specific challenges encountered by women in modern Indian society and how do they negotiate traditional norms as they seek to redefine their self-identity and well-being in modern era. The cornerstone of writing this book is to help readers develop their critical thinking about the pertinent issue which affects everyone’s life. This book is divided into six chapters i.e. Unwanted Daughters; Plight of Female Literacy, Reproductive Health; Child Sexual Abuse; Domestic Violence and Human Rights of Women which are based on the latest reliable data to show the ground reality. Rethinking Gender Equality is a veritable treasure trove of data on critical issues related to women. The book is strongly recommended for the students and research scholars of Gender Studies, Sociology, Social Work, Law and other related fields, media personnel, women’s rights activists and policy makers. ..more

Dictionary of Research Methods
Janak Singh MeenaSubhash Meena
Effective research methods are the tools by which information is gathered. Without the appropriate design and use of research methods, we are unlikely to gather quality information and as such create a shaky foundation to any review, evaluation or future strategy. For researchers, the group of research methods contained within this handbook are the research terms, and like any methods need to be used in the right way–for the right research. Research methods, if understood and used appropriately can make your research a lot easier. This book, therefore attempts on the one hand to explain and demystify the world of research methods, whilst on the other it seeks to provide a strarting point for their use. In this, we are not suggesting that using research methods is easy, but merely that it can be appreciated and undertaken by practitioners and non-research experts. This book, reflects our wider aim to develop and improve the performance of the researchers in their research works. In this, we hope this handbook goes some way in helping to address some of the persistent issues faced by researchers and contributes to ensuring positive changes in research field. ..more
