Citizenship and Management in Public Administration is an exciting journey into the nexus between two separate but close worlds: citizenship orientations and citizenship behavior as reflected in political science theory on one hand, and organizational sciences, work studies, management, and public administration on the other. The authors have combined theoretical thinking with empirical findings to support their theories, and the data presented has been collected over almost a decade of field studies and surveys of public organizations. Dealing with the nature and meaning of citizenship, this book looks at behavior and involvement in modern public worksites. The interdisciplinary studies are all concerned with achieving better integration of the theories and ideas on citizenship and bureaucracies, which are more frequently treated as independent domains in the social sciences. However, the authors suggest that they are closely related and should be analyzed in relation to one another. This unique book will appeal to academics of management and organizational behavior, public administration and those involved in researching the not-for-profit, or third, sector.

About the Author:

Edited by Eran Vigoda-Gadot, Professor of Public Administration and Management and Aaron Cohen, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Public Administration, University of Haifa, Israel

Review:

`This book is extremely valuable for public administration scholars who are interested in public management, organizational behavior, and organizational theories. . . The chapters are intellectually simulating to read because they pull together different literatures in very effective ways.' -- Kaifeng Yang, Public Management Review `. . . this work makes an important contribution. It offers an expanded view of citizens and citizenship that is theoretically informed and empirically grounded. It probes the perspectives of citizen-workers and reveals the basis for and scope of their activities, in particular presenting a compelling explanation of the citizens' inclinations toward participation, their actual involvement, and resulting work outcomes. This combination of managerial decision-making and citizen participation is captivating, and generates a worthwhile and accessible analysis that also helps to fill a prominent gap in the public management and political science literatures. Managers, researchers, and teachers alike will value this book.' -- Amy K. Donahue, Local Government Studies
