About the Author:

Robert B. Denhardt is Professor and Director of Leadership Development in the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California, Regents Professor Emeritus at Arizona State University, and Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the University of Delaware. A past president of the American Society for Public Administration and a member of the National Academy of Public Administration, Dr. Denhardt has published twenty-two books, including THE DANCE OF LEADERSHIP, THE NEW PUBLIC SERVICE, MANAGING HUMAN BEHAVIOR IN PUBLIC AND NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS, THEORIES OF PUBLIC ORGANIZATION, PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION: AN ACTION ORIENTATION, IN THE SHADOW OF ORGANIZATION, and THE PURSUIT OF SIGNIFICANCE.

Janet V. Denhardt is the Chester A. Newland Professor of Public Administration in the Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California. Her teaching and research interests focus on organization theory, organizational behavior, and leadership. Her most recent book, THE DANCE OF LEADERSHIP, was preceded by THE NEW PUBLIC SERVICE, MANAGING HUMAN BEHAVIOR IN PUBLIC AND NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS, and STREET-LEVEL LEADERSHIP: DISCRETION AND LEGITIMACY IN FRONT-LINE PUBLIC SERVICE. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Southern California, Dr. Denhardt taught at Arizona State University and Eastern Washington University as well as served in a variety of administrative and consulting positions.

Tara A. Blanc is a lecturer in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University. Her teaching and research interests are primarily in the areas of public service, civic and political engagement, leadership, and public service ethics. Formerly the associate director of the Cronkite/Eight Poll at Arizona State University, she co-directs a public opinion poll for ASU's Morrison Institute for Public Policy and provides consulting services on projects involving public opinion research, planning, and communication.

Review:

"...the approach is solid. The text starts with the importance of PA and progresses nicely through the various essential building blocks of the discipline. The authors, in my view, do a very good job of maintaining neutrality in the topic, yet challenge the reader through case studies and exercises."

"This is an excellent approach to expose students to public administration while also reinforcing the importance of management principles and the basis of ethical conduct and the role of ethics in our decision-making."

"The authors make the core ideas, concepts, and terms readily apparent to students. Students are not left to guess about what it is that the authors intend to emphasize in each chapter."
