Summary

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION IN THE NEW CENTURY: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE WORLD OF PUBLIC MANAGEMENT provides a solid introduction into the fundamental areas of public administration, blending theory with practice in a way that helps students apply theoretical models to the real world in an engaging format. While more concise than other books, the complexities and breadth of the field and discipline of public administration are thoroughly covered, including the history of the discipline, bureaucracy, organizational theory and behavior, public budgeting, personnel administration, public policy, and ethics.

  • Greene provides an alternative to the traditional, full-length public administration textbook by presenting a concise yet thorough presentation of the fundamental areas of the discipline.
  • Boxes, tables, and illustrations are useful tools that help students apply theory to the real world.
  • A unique and thorough Chapter 7, "The Basics of Public Policy," and Chapter 9, "Ethics and Public Administration," make practical connections for students of public administration.
