From the Publisher
"This is the book for administrators because of its emphasis on communication.... It is equally useful for graduate work in public administration, urban planning, social work, forestry, and other fields of government."

"This is one of those rare books where the rave reviews do the work justice. Although the work deals specifically with communication in government, any reader wishing to communicate better will appreciate this book. Communicating for Results in Government should be required reading for anyone entering into any position in government."

"This thorough and well researched book articulates and reinforces many of the ideas with which public administration as a field is concerned as we enter the 1990s.... It is a much needed addition to the professional literature as a guide for practitioners and a text for students."
