Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Seeks to balance the ubiquitous news of bad government with reports of success, and to convey the idea that excellent public service means ingenious and creative problem solving as well as honesty, efficiency, and accountability. The 16 studies discuss such aspects as public management at the state house and city hall, insights from the private sector on the public interest, why good government does not make good news, and parallel ad-hoc processes as scaffolding. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
