   2 Diwakar, Rekha
Party system in India / Rekha Diwakar.-- New Delhi:
Oxford, 2017.
(Oxford India short introductions).
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780199479597.
324.254 DIW 145595
This book analyses the characteristics, evolution, and
determinants of party system in India. Through a
combination of examining theoretical explanations and
interpreting empirical data, this short introduction
facilitates a clear comprehension of the various phases
of the Indian party system, from Congress- dominance to
the fragmentation of the party system, the emergence of
regional parties and coalition politics, and more
recently a move towards a BJP-centered party system. It
argues that the party system in India continues to be
shaped by a complex interaction of sociological,
institutional, and contextual factors. By situating the
Indian party system in the context of these determinants,
this book also attempts to provide a framework for
comparative analysis of party systems.

Oxford, 2017.
Includes bibliographic references and index.
ISBN : 9780199475537.

The book explores the interaction of political parties,
bureaucracy, media, judiciary, and civil society groups
in shaping policy in contemporary India. By researching
the evolution of nine major legislations using a
consistent lens, the work interrogates the suitability of
existing political theories to explain the policy
development process in an emerging economy like India. It
covers recent events such as the agitation for the Jan
Lokpal Bill and the Nirbhaya case that have underlined
the role of non-government players in law-making in India
as well as long-standing movements like for right to
information, right to education, and food security.

   4 Biorn, Erik
Econometrics of panel data : methods and applications /
Erik Biorn.-- Clarendon: Oxford University Press, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780198753445.
330.015195 BIO 145637
Panel data is a data type increasingly used in research
in economics, social sciences and medicine. Its primary
characteristic is that the data variation goes jointly
over space and time. Panel data allow examination of
problems that cannot be handled by cross-section data or
time-series data. Panel data analysis is a core field in
modern econometrics and multivariate statistics, and
studies based on such data occupy a growing part of the
field in many other disciplines. This work is intended as
a text for master and advanced undergraduate courses.

   6 Betcherman, Gordon (ed)
Jobs for development : challenges and solutions in
different country settings / Gordon Betcherman and Martin
Rama.-- Clarendon: Oxford, 2016.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780198754848.
331.12 BET 145609
This book is a sequel to the World Bank-s World
Development Report 2013: Jobs. The central message of
that report was that job creation is at the heart of
development. Jobs raise living standards and lift people
out of poverty, they contribute to gains in aggregate
productivity, and they may even foster social cohesion.
In doing so, jobs may have spillovers beyond the private
returns they offer to those who hold them. Poverty
reduction is arguably a public good, making everybody
better off, higher productivity spreads across co-
workers, clusters, and cities, and social cohesion
improves the outcomes of collective decision-making.

policies / Indira Hirway.-- New Delhi: Oxford, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780199468256.
331.4133 HIR 145611
This book establishes that there is an urgent need to
measure unpaid work and incorporate it in analyzing the
critical concerns of an economy. As a first step, it
focuses on gathering quality statistics and methodologies
required to conduct time-use surveys in moving towards
integrating unpaid work in policymaking. Assessing
various time-use surveys from the global South Asia
Pacific, Latin America, and Africa the book moves on to
address critical socioeconomic concerns such as poverty
alleviation, employment, gender equality, women-s
empowerment, as also the overall well-being and
development of a nation. With in-depth theoretical
foundations and empirical analysis, it builds the case
for aggregating quality time-use data for sustainable
development of the global South.
