The eighth edition of Public Administration: Understanding Management, Politics, and Law in the Public Sector grounds students in the fundamentals of public administration while embracing its complexity. It describes, explains, and analyses public administration through the lenses of three well-established perspectives: management, politics, and law. This edition retains its strong U.S. focus while broadening the discussion and themes in recognition of its adoption in about twenty countries abroad and to enhance its global utility as a “world text.”
