Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The text has an intuitive sequence based on a functional approach that is roughly chronological. It introduces the basic theories as they build and respond to one another. This sequence allows students to gain an appreciation for the sweep of the discipline's history through the prism of major theoretical schools of administrative thought." - Brett Sharp, University of Central Oklahoma
