Grounded in the assumptions that public administration is more than the application of business administration tools to the management of government agencies and that values and ethics are central to all aspects of public administration, this unique new reader examines the nature, scope, structures, functions, and challenges facing public administration at the turn of the 21st century. Including many of the most insightful, previously published articles and book chapters written on the subject, it is the only reader available that approaches long-standing, historical public administration issues from a contemporary, "turn of the millennium" perspective.
