Donald F. Kettl

Anyone interested in assessing the vitality and strength of the field of public management need look no farther than this book. There is no orthodoxy here. Indeed, the book is a far-ranging and provocative exploration of the issues in play—and the big puzzles that remain to be solved.

George Frederickson

This is a splendid collection of essays, theory development and empirical research by many of the leading scholars in public administration and policy. It should be required reading for anyone wishing to be up-to-date in public administration and policy.
