Overview

Administration and the Other examines the social construction of groups of people and resultant policy impacts in the discourse of the American Republic from before its founding to the present. The book suggests that from pre-revolutionary interactions between early colonialists and Native Americans to recent immigration debates, discourse on The Other has resulted in the development of policies that have led to further marginalization, community division, and harm to scores of innocents within the public sphere. Ultimately,Administration and the Other examines the construction of The Other from a sociological and historical framework to engage students and scholars of political and administrative processes in using the often unspoken history of the field, as part of a larger historical framework, to explore how policy has been shaped in relation to marginalized communities. By presenting elements of history that are frequently not entered into the administrative and political discourse, the book aims to frame a conversation that might lead to the integration of thoughts about the often marginalized Other into discussions of policy-making and policy-implementation processes.

Editorial Reviews

Sylvester Murray
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.
Susan T. Gooden
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.
