Description

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY emphasizes the importance of moving beyond reform to a future-oriented stance. The text identifies several themes central to public administration, including the importance of globalization, diversity, intergovernmental relations, and the critical significance of public law as a central defining feature of public life. Through these and other important concepts, this book acknowledges that public administrators not only consider and implement new directions in policy, but thereby play important roles in shaping it as well.
