Book by Iqra riazzuddin is quite good. It has got diagrams, quotes, facts and figures etc. Though ,it seems like it's copy pasted from different places . But still it's quite good as you have good all this stuff at one place. But there is a lot of repitition of topics,and I think this thing is due to syllabus of public administration and due to this reason that topics overlap with one another.
But with this book go through Fpsc suggested readings too. Only if you want to score high.

Thank you sir!

I have prepared Public Administration through Sultan Khan's book. It covered almost complete syllabus. Is Iqra's book same as Sultan or different. Because I wanted to know any book that complement Sultan Khan book and should be fpsc recommended. Moreover it give better understanding from basics to advance for getting good marks.

Though it will compliment sultan khan's book , because mainly this book consists of diagrams ,figures, quotes and all that stuff. But for you it will be better to go for any foreign auhor then, as you have already read that whole book. Just try adding material from internet and from different journals. I am not able to send pics from iqra riazuddins book here. But you can check it at any good book store. Then you will come to know that you need it in reality or not.
Try notes by Virtual university too. They are available online. They have got some good stuff like easy diagrams etc. And then you can add examples and case studies after listening to lectures by VU or there are lectures available onlineby some other professors too. I can't remember their names. You can get them by searching . And I think there is are some openware courses by MIT ,and with it United nations have got whole section dedicated to publications related to public administration. And with it , you can get some good stuff like outlines and mind maps of public administration from upsc preparation sites.

Governing the ungovernable by Ishrat Hussain. Go through this book too. You can get it from Oxford university press shops or from their offices. It's an awesome book. I used it for PMS interview and this book is quite interesting. You can use it as a reference book. There are lot of case studies,reseaches and opinions of different think tanks in it , that you can use in public administration paper. Hope it helps.

Yes I'm planning to buy this book and Constitutional and Political history of Pakistan, Pakistan Foreign Policy by Abdul Sattar also.
Can you suggest some other good books, which can be beneficial for preparing competitive exams?
