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."

Arrived as promised. No problems. Easy transaction. Book was as described. To say that I love it is a bit of a stretch, it is for school but I need it and I can't complain!
