Selected from issues of the Public Administration Review over 30 years of publication, these articles provide a useful supplement to most public administration textbooks. The articles are all written from a public administration perspective that balances the legal and judicial environment with administrative practice. Beckett (public administration and urban studies, U. of Akron) and Koenig (public administration, Northern Illinois U.) introduce each section with a brief overview of the general subject.
