From the Nuremberg trials to the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 to recent budget reconciliation bills, the latest online edition of the Encyclopedia of Public Administration and Public Policy reaches still further across the globe to provide detailed coverage of watershed policies and decisions from such fields as privatization, biomedical ethics, education, and diversity. This edition features a wide range of new topics, including military administration, government procurement, social theory, and justice administration in developed democracies. It also addresses current issues such as the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and covers public administration in the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific, and Latin America.

Completely updated to reflect current trends in the vast field of public administration, the second edition of this bestselling encyclopedia provides an exhaustive resource that features the input of leading scholars. Each authoritative entry is a coherent article, rather than a short paragraph, that offers readers salient theories, issues, and concepts.
