Editorial Reviews

Review

"[P]rovides such a thorough and thoughtful plea for the need of a continuous emphasis on what is public about government conduct and why; it is, as such, the first of its kind."—Public Administration Review

Review

"Hooray for Barry Bozeman! The case he makes for ‘managing publicness’ is brilliant and a must-read for everyone interested in advancing the common good in an age of economic individualism. . . . With this book, Bozeman joins the august ranks of the truly important contemporary moral philosophers."—John M. Bryson, associate dean for research and centers, Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota

"Bozeman's analysis merits the attention of any serious scholar or policymaker concerned with the public interest, public goods, public policy, and public management, and with theory and practice pertaining to the roles of the governmental and nongovernmental institutions of a nation."—Hal G. Rainey, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor, School of Public and International Affairs, The University of Georgia

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bozeman's account of the necessity for taking public values into account is solid and well conceived. He provides clear criteria for determining the publicness of values and offers clear recommendations for how they can be advanced in the public interest. In so doing he offers a counter to the traditional liberal emphasis on individual interests. He reminds us that politics and public policy are about the things that we really care about which cannot be reduced to material interests, such as the common good, sustainability, and human dignity. This emphasis on values could help to focus us on some of the key aspects of our effort to manage the federal deficit in the context of what we value as a society. The one shortcoming is his failure to incorporate the useful insights about values in public policy that have been developed over the years by Frank Fischer.

Awesome book. I use it in the public policy introductory courses I teach. It is easily accessible to undergraduate students.
