Mastering Public Administration
by Brian R. Fry; Jos C. N. Raadschelders
Publication Date: 2008-02-27
Mastering Public Administration is a wonderful starting point for an in-depth and nuanced study of the leading theorists in the field. With each chapter focusing on one figure, Brian Fry and new coauthor Jos Raadschelders weave an insightful narrative that not only humanizes these luminaries but makes their scholarship less abstract and easier for students to understand and apply. In addition to a new chapter on Charles Lindblom, the second edition includes a timeline that depicts a chronology of all of the figures&BAD:rsquo; lives and seminal works. A &BAD:ldquo;Linkages to Contemporary Literature&BAD:rdquo; chart maps their ideas and impact, and a new conclusion discusses the connections between their scholarship, explores their continuing influence, and delves into the nature of the public administration field of study.
