Updated in its 8th edition, Introducing Public Administration provides readers with a solid, conceptual foundation in public administration, and contains the latest information on important trends in the discipline.Known for their lively and witty writing style, Shafritz, Russell, and Borick cover the most important issues in public administration using examples from various disciplines and modern culture. This approach captivates readers and encourages them to think critically about the nature of public administration today.
From a student’s perspective, this text did about as good of a job at spicing up such dry material as it could have. One thing I would note is that there are some obvious biases present, especially in the introductory material for each chapter.
Up to date and well written. This was a required read for a college class but it was so well written that unlike many textbooks I wasn’t bored. This book gave the student constructive questions that lead to in class discussions.
