About the Book

This edition reexamines the concept of Good Governance and its different dimensions. In fact, the notion of good governance has become one of the critical determinates of development in the developing world. Accordingly, the new edition has incorporated all those issues and problems having impact on the quality of governance. Rule of law is the cardinal principle of liberal democracy and, hence, crucial for promoting good governance and human rights. In this edition, the authors have made a comprehensive and critical investigation of the functioning of judicial system in India with a view to highlight the fact that the future of democracy, development and governance are closely interlinked. Transparency in administration is vital for promoting good governance and economic development. The authors have also made a very systematic study of the right to information incorporated under the Indian Constitution. It is undoubtedly one of the major developments in the direction of promoting good governance in India. A comparative study of India and China, regarding the role of good governance in enhancing the economic development of these two countries, is an important part of this volume. In addition, a case study of the post-Apartheid South Africa has been made to highlight the point that prevention of political violence and crime is essential for promoting good governance and economic development.
