Editorial Reviews

Review

"An important overview of the discipline of public administration for graduate students and scholars in public administration, public management, and public policy."―

"This book is an outstanding contribution to the field and literature of public administration and itwill become a 'must read' on book lists for many university courses."―Political Studies Review

Review

"Public Administration is among the most valuable books in the field. Riccucci masterfully, succinctly, clearly, and comprehensively explains how we go about knowing what we know in public administration. The book should be required reading for every doctoral student in the field, and faculty members in all our research traditions will undoubtedly find it exceptionally helpful and useful. The book will make a major and lasting contribution to the ways in which we design and organize our research and scholarship."―David H. Rosenbloom, Chair Professor of Public Management, City University of Hong Kong, and distinguished professor of public administration, American University

"This book provides a sweeping and inclusive examination of the epistemic foundations of public administration theory and methods. Riccucci convincingly demonstrates that the field is better served when research questions drive methodological choices, rather than methodological commitments driving the questions we ask. Hence, this book should be a standard text for graduate seminars on the logic of inquiry and research design in public administration. "―Craig Thomas, Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs, University of Washington
