Summary

Public Administration: Concepts and Cases offers a unique and highly regarded framework in which conceptual readings are paired with contemporary case studies that reflect real-world examples of administrative work, as well as new thinking and developments in the field. The new case studies and examples cover topics such as the Columbia space shuttle disaster, the shootings at Columbine High School, the AIDS epidemic, and the war in Iraq--making it easy to engage students in the readings. Over 60% of the case studies are new. The readings include introductions, annotations, and discussion questions. Chapters contain review questions, key terms, and suggestions for further reading. Pertinent topics include ecology and decision-making, intergovernmental relations, information networks, and ethics. A topical table of contents makes it easy to choose subjects of particular interest.
