The dictionary is meant for two types of readers--general readers and students. The first category encompasses the enlightened citizens who want to understand the present-day economic developments at the national and international levels. For the student community, economics is one of the most promising areas of study, offering bright career opportunities. The most special feature of the present dictionary is the "Gandhian Political Economy : Perspectives and Applicability", the Paper presented at the University of Calgary, Canada, in 1997 by Dr. Y.P. Anand, who was Director of National Gandhi Museum, New Delhi from June 1996 to July 2006. Students preparing for competitive examinations will specially find the dictionary of considerable help.
