Editorial Reviews

A text for use in public administration, urban planning, and public health administration courses which asserts that the distinctions between the public and private sectors have become blurred, and that emerging techniques to promote more efficient and effective management of financial resources now apply to all organizations. Steiss (Virginia Tech) and Nwagwu (Jackson State U.) analyze the issues that financial managers and public administrators encounter daily, focusing on three fundamental processes: cash management, including the analysis of revenue sources and expenditures, forecasting, and investment strategies; financial planning, dealing with cost analysis techniques, budgeting, and capital resource management; and management control, including fund accounting and budgetary accounting.
