Editorial Reviews


"The Future of Public Administration Around the World: The Minnowbrook Perspective deserves tremendous credit for raising (or perhaps refocusing our attention on) these important big questions for the field." -- International Public Management Journal

"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." -- Carolyn Heinrich, director, La Follette School of Public Affairs and professor of public affairs and economics, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"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." -- Hon S. Chan, City University of Hong Kong

"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." -- Trevor Brown, associate director of academic affairs and research, John Glenn School of Public Affairs, The Ohio State University

"We all complain about the 'bureaucracy', and our faith in government seems to erode even as the challenges multiply. The experts contributing to this book -- all public administration scholars -- know about the problems in all their complexity. Both practitioners and those promoting reforms will benefit from the insights and the different perspectives of the authors." -- Paul A. Volcker

"[This book] is 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." -- Kenneth J. Meier, Texas A&M University and Cardiff University
