Needs editing and reworking in places, but provides fairly comprehensive introduction to public administration
on June 29, 2013
This text was the sole-required textbook for Political Science 489 Public Administration at Penn State Harrisburg, fall 2012. This review refers to the Kindle version which at the time of purchase could only be viewed on the Kindle Fire (and computer Kindle software programs as opposed to older Kindle devices) due to its production as an authentic replica of the textbook. There are grammatical and spelling errors in the text though they should not be a hindrance overall. There are also points where the authors seem to inject their own opinion into the text without clearly stating so and hopefully the critical reader will note these instances and evaluate them accordingly. Where I found such errors (grammatical/spelling) or such opinions that needed a counterpoint, I added a note. As long as Amazon Kindle projects continue to share such notes, you should be able to view them on your own device. Hopefully, you have an instructor who has significant experience and is willing to share that knowledge candidly to balance the material presented in the text. If you're in college working on your degree, good luck with your studies.
