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.
This Handbook presents an authoritative and innovative overview of this fascinating field, with particular emphasis on the significant new and emerging concepts and theoretical issues. Divided into four parts, the first explores the major theories influencing current thinking and shaping future research in the field of governance. Part two deals specifically with issues surrounding new theories - the changing role of the state and the emerging function of networks and of alternative domains of governance. Parts three and four then go on to consider the implications for managing governance and recent attempts to rethink democracy and citizenship in ways that are less tied to the formal institutions of the state.
The past two decades have been marked by a period of substantial and often fundamental change in public administration. Critically reflecting on the utility of scholarly theory and the extent to which government practices inform the development of this theory, the Handbook of Public Administration was a landmark publication which served as an essential guide for both the practice of public administration today and its on-going development as an academic discipline.
