Human Resource Management in Public Service: Paradoxes, Processes, and Problems Fourth Edition offers provocative and thorough coverage of the complex issues of management in the public sector, from both employee and managerial viewpoints. It discusses the issues, explains how they arise, and suggests what can be done about them. It continues to offer paradoxical perspectives about the inherent challenges as well as the unique political and legal context of the public sector management within which they take place. The book covers all of the stages of the employment process, including recruitment, selection, training, legal rights and responsibilities, compensation, and appraisal. Grounded in real public service experiences, the book emphasizes hands-on skill building and problem solving.

Review:

"This book is one of the most informative and comprehensive books on the market on Human Resources Management. My students totally love it, and several of them plan on keeping this book as a source of reference for years to come. The book presents a realistic view of the various challenges and opportunities employers and employees are faced with in their organizations. As an instructor, I am very glad to have found the right book for my students." (Meghna Sabharwal 2011-10-28)

“The historical and philosophical dimensions are what makes a good HRM book in public administration, and these are what this book cleverly delivers.” (Jonathan Paquette 2011-10-28)
