Summary
Like the air we breathe, nervousness about race surrounds us. In this compelling book the author contends that social equity--specifically racial equity--is a "nervous" area of government. Over the course of history, this nervousness has resulted in an inability to seriously advance the reduction of racial inequities in government. Until this nervousness is effectively managed, efforts designed to reduce racial inequities in the public sector cannot realize their full potential. This book profiles case studies at the federal, state, and local level that are "ahead of the curve" in navigating this nervous area of government. It concludes by considering performance management, educational challenges within public administration, and race and social equity in a comparative context. The final chapter of the book offers ten practical principles for conquering nervousness in government. Race and Social Equity is written for public administration faculty and graduate students, and is particularly targeted for use in graduate-level courses with an emphasis on social equity, race, diversity, public management, and organizational behavior. Public service practitioners will also find this book to be a valuable resource in tackling an important issue --Provided by publisher
