From the Back Cover

Watson, Robert P., Public Administration: Cases in Managerial Role-Playing*\ This unique series of role-playing scenarios gives readers a realistic view of what it is like to manage public agencies, programs, and employees, providing readers with a deeper understanding of the field through active learning. The book features contemporary, realistic cases of typical managerial challenges faced by administrators in both the public and non-profit sectors. Compiled and edited by Professor Robert Watson, the 24 cases in this volume have been written by public administration instructors and practitioners from across the country and, as is often the situation in the real world, there are no easy answers to the challenges presented. For those interested in public administration, public personnel management.

I generally liked the book, but it did not deliver on the title.

The book does present over a dozen case studies on ethics in government positions. The case studies are well written and thought out and cover topical areas of concern to today's government leaders.

The book promises to present role-playing opportunities, and to get there from what the book presents is a long, long journey that would a coach, teacher, or referee to put in many hours fleshing things out. There is no practical way to tell what the motivations of the characters would be except in the broadest sense, and it is hard to role-play as a singular entity. By definition, role-playing exercises should have several other participants at least.

Great idea, it just was not executed well.

In service,

Rich

Format: Paperback
The case studies are varied, complex, and realistic. As a student, I used this as a textbook in a dual-level course on public administration. The case studies elicited thought and discussion from undergraduates. An outstanding feature of the book is that it includes examples from the non-profit sector as well as government. Although fictionalized, the case studies are obviously based on real-world examples.

My book arrived very promptly, which was convenient seeing as how I only need it for school. It is in great condition and not missing any pages.
