What People are Saying About This

Trevor Brown

This edited volume of Minnowbrook III’s best contributions provides readers a roadmap through the issues that frame the global field of public administration and management. The editors have compiled a comprehensive yet readable and accessible contribution to the public administration and management canon.

Hon S. Chan

Minnowbrook I (1968), II (1988), and III (2008) are watershed events in the intellectual development of public administration. This book is an indispensable and rich encapsulation of the thrust of Minnowbrook III and a guide to the ideas and forces that will shape public administration's next decade. No serious scholar of public administration should be without it.

Kenneth J. Meier

A kaleidoscope of views of the future of public administration; it demonstrates a rich diversity of positions and viewpoints on what public administration will be or should be.

Carolyn Heinrich

Public administration is an incredibly diverse and rapidly globalizing field, including a broad range of actors with varying types and areas of expertise. This edited volume from the Minnowbrook III Conference has something important, and often invaluable, for all who engage it. Written in a readily accessible style and with a cutting-edge focus on both academic and professional themes, it is a must-read for those who want to stay or arrive at the forefront of public administration, as scholars or practitioners.
