The American state, with its various instruments of policy-making and implementation, has found itself wrestling with various policy challenges related to matters of marginalization. Administration and the Other uses historical cases to examine the social construction of groups in American policy and proposes using the various lessons that are often unspoken in discussions of the history and evolution of the field to launch a discourse of inclusion and connectivity.

Review quote

This is a comprehensively researched, convincingly written book, detailing institutional racism acts on the part of public officials and public administrators. I am sure that Farmbry's 'the Other' will become a theoretical framework for others researching similar topics. A significant addition to the teaching of public administration. -- Sylvester Murray, Savannah State University Through a largely historical analysis, Farmbry's book stimulates important engagement of the framing of the role of the other in the U.S. adminisrative state. His book offers critical consideration of 'otherness' across myriad time periods and groups while encouraging continuous reflection by 21st-century public administration scholars and students. It will especially challenge graduate students to reconsider what they think they know about public administration. -- Susan T. Gooden, Virginia Commonwealth University
