Summary

In "Diversity and Affirmative Action in Public Service," Walter Broadnax brings together much of the most influential research and thought in public administration literature regarding diversity and affirmative action. Equal employment opportunity, gender discrimination, creating a representative bureaucracy, age discrimination, and disabilities are examined in detail by drawing on the best work in the Public Administration Review, and by providing useful perspectives regarding that work over time.
