Product Description:

The Craft of Public Administration is not just a textbook; it is a pedagogical gathering of pertinent yet limited literature, assembled to inform and interest college students in the dynamics of the public, or government, sector in the United States. The four pedagogical segments of this textbook — federalism, public personnel administration, budgets, and government regulations — succinctly organize the study of partisan, policy, and system politics — and government bureaucracies.
