Summary

Combining the most current public management thinking and research with examples of how public executives and organizations apply these ideas, Managing the Public Sector is a comprehensive introduction to the field of public management.

The Ninth Edition continues to engage the student's intellect by providing more than just the basic foundations of management; it places the application of management in the context of the public sector and tries to capture the excitement and challenge of the field.

"I particularly like the use of cases and supplemental reading at the end of each chapter. The author uses contemporary and vivid examples to illustrate the theoretical concepts in each chapter. Also, extensive review of the relevant literature is incorporated throughout the text". -Dr. Vidu Soni, Central Michigan University

Amazing book April 9, 2011
by
Excellent textbook. Each Chapter was well organized with realistic example. The language the author used in the textbook was easy to understand. The key notes were very helpful and exercises were great for class discussion. I certainly will use this book as my primary source for the final MPA-examination. I was amazed how fast I received my book. I ordered this textbook a two weeks before my class and I got it before my class began. The book was in the condition it was said it was and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. This is my second time in ordering textbooks at ecampus and I am happy with the results.
