This book is written by two retired IAS officers one of whom was a Chief Secretary of Gujarat. This book is written specifically for UPSC Mains Paper – V.
It’s up for Pre-order now on Flipkart. Most of the topics in the book are from syllabus (not all). We don’t know the quality of writing, but it is better to buy this book than have nothing right now.
There are case studies in the end. As it’s written by senior most officers themselves, there will be some authenticity to the solutions provided to the case studies.
Available for Pre-order on Flipkart
Note: In 2 days, ‘How To Prepare for GS Paper – V’ will be posted on this blog. It was difficult to find credible materials for this paper. Somehow, I have found something to finally write an article on it. Thanks for all the patience.
