Overview

Public management stands at the unique intersection of theory and practice. It seeks to help scholars frame questions that will improve their understanding of how policy ideas become transformed into practice and to help government managers see past the narrow issues on their desks to the broader implications of their work.

Editorial Reviews

Perspectives on Political Science
This book's essays are some of the best papers presented at the second National Public Management Conference at the Robert M. LaFollette Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in October 1993. The chapters in the book mark important milestones in the new discipline of public management. They not only explore how public programs can be managed to work better, but they also chart the maturation of thinking about how it ought to be done.

— Norman Gill
