The Concise Dictionary of Education is a glittering landmark in the annals of Education in a gregarious society as a path-finder with ornate and studied language of lapidary phrases in an efficacious manner with nascent terminologies, textual it ies, burgeoning nomenclatures and pragmatic illustrations tenaciously adhering to the intrinsic link of the words and their meanings. With principled wisdom, words have been arranged in such a fashion to conserve and preserve the cogency and continuity for easy understanding. The petals of fragrance are unfolded with new usages of phraseology. Theoritical renewal with recrystallisation of definitions and their origins are presented in the widening horizon of education. Different meanings for the headword are the speciality of this Dictionary. Another splendid feature is the exemplification of the objectives of the particular word that are given in a nutshell. The w^nds of change in the educational patterns and systems are blowing dominantly with very little well-documented treatises. Nevertheless, a wide spectrum of major areas of education are illustrated with lancet with laser beam penetration with appreciable introspection. The whole book is propagating the philosophy of education which will be immensely useful with an ongoing concern by breaking new grounds in the academic arena.

This Concise Dictionary of Education is the first of its kind in India which will be a best ready reckoner and referencer to the academics, edcators, educands and to everyone who evinces enthusiasm in understanding the education. All due care has been taken to bring out this Dictionary in an authoritative manner. Nevertheless, the Editors own all the responsibilities if anything is still wanting. Suggestions, if any, for the improvement of the Dictionary will be gratefully acknowledged.
