Summary
"Foundations of Public Service is designed to serve as a basic text for an introductory course in public administration. It is written with the needs of both the experienced practitioner and the aspiring entry-level public servant in mind. Plentiful case examples bridge the context-rich environment of practitioners with the basic principles of public administration sought by pre-service students." "The book's coverage of basic management practices is grounded in the political and ethical tensions inherent in the American constitutional form of governance. This reflects the authors' belief that public administration operates as an integral part of a country's political traditions and thereby helps define or "constitute" the political culture."--BOOK JACKET
