This wide-ranging, up-to-date and detailed account of all aspects of public economics covers topics as varied as:

* classical theorems of welfare economics
* the theory of public expenditure
* the effects of taxation on savings, labour supply investment and risk-taking
* commodity, income and expenditure taxation
* public sector and cost-benefit analysis
* fiscal federalism.

Written by Raghbendra Jha, an author with an established reputation, this book fills the gap in literature on this topic and will be a valuable reference for undergraduates in the fields of economics and public finance.

"Professor Jha's "Modern Public Economics is one of those rare feats--an accessible, wide-ranging and marvelously organized survey of the field for intermediate students and a precise down-to-earth manual for practitioners." -Edmund S. Phelps, Columbia University "Jha's book fills an important lacuna from the point of view of students.... The challenging task before a contemporary text is to convexy the movement from the old to the new public economics in a manner that will enthuse and motivate the studnets. This is a subtle task and Jha has accomplished this admirably... "Modern Public Economics is an excellent and exciting book and belongs on the bookshelf of every serious student of the effect of state intervention in the market place." -"Economic and Political Weekly "This is a significant book. I am confident that it will rapidly gain pole position for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates." -P.M. Jackson, University of Leicester ""Modern Public Economics is clearly a winner.... Readers will be thankful to Jha for bringing out such a book.... the strength of the book lies in its vast coverage [and it] is likely to be valued as an important text on public economics for years to come." -Reserve Bank of India, Occasional Papers
