Editorial Reviews

Review

"Richard Stillman's case book is a necessity for teaching Public Administration. It is the only adequate text for examining the relationship between theory and practice."

"Public Administration: Concepts and Cases is a wonderful tool for introducing students to the deep intellectual roots of public administration and demonstrating to them the relevance of our theoretical foundations for solving the complex problems that characterize the practice public management."

"The author has done an outstanding job providing fundamental elements of American public administration. The conceptional readings and case studies included are engaging ways to equip students."

"This text appealed to me because of its combined use of concepts and cases. Additionally, the book includes very important classical public administration pieces. It provides a good framework for approaching the field from either a historical perspective or from a practical perspective."

This text presents a wide variety of theoretical essays regarding public administration sprinkled with a case studies that provide for meaningful discussions when well-analyzed. It's definitely a good basis for those in public administration and those striving to understand the field.

The book was in decent shape, but it didn't matter as it arrived so late, I'd already ordered and received the same book from someone else. I needed it for my class. Fortunately it was a cheap book, so having to order it twice didn't cost me too much extra, but it was annoying, especially as the other book for my class arrived in two days.

This sender stated that he was going to mail it right out, and 1.5 weeks later he still hasn't mailed it out. I am in a class and I need it now, not around Christmas. this sender gets the lowest rating possible.
