Directories of Government Agencies

Access to government often appears to be overwhelming. There are at least 80,000 units of government in the United States--of which the federal government is only one; other units include states, a commonwealth, territories, counties; cities; towns, villages, and districts with the independent ability to raise taxes for schools, water systems, fire departments and similar specific functions. For purposes of research, it is not sufficient to contact the largest governmental units--the federal government, each state, or a large city of 100,000+. It is also necessary to contact their component departments, agencies, bureaus, and offices, thus multiplying the scope of potential contacts. If research involves surveys or interviews, contacts with individual officials are necessary; yet there are approximately seventeen million public sector employees in the U.S. Even at the appointed policy levels, there are easily in excess of one million individuals. How can such organizations and individuals be identified? Fortunately, excellent directories are available. Most are updated on an annual basis. Although they are prohibitively costly (with few exceptions) for an individual, they are readily available in research libraries. Those described below should be taken as representative of the available resources and not as a comprehensive listing. They are an excellent starting point for organization-based research. In addition to the national directories cited below, many state and municipal government directories are published.

Encyclopedia of American Foreign Policy. Deconde, Alexander., Richard Burns D., Fredrik Logevall, and Louise Ketz B. 2nd Ed. Charles Scribner's Sons, 2001. Much about the world has changed since 1978, when this encyclopedia's first edition appeared. The Soviet Union has dissolved, Yugoslavia has become a jigsaw puzzle of smaller states designed to keep ethnic conflict in check, an oil war raged briefly in the Persian Gulf, Eastern Europe has been freed to find its own way, Israeli and Palestinian leaders met on the White House lawn to sign a peace accord that is fading into memory, and China has experienced both brutal political repression and significant economic reform. The U.S. has had to adjust its foreign policy to fit this post-cold war world. The revised Encyclopedia of American Foreign Policy reflects the challenge the nation has faced in several ways. The most evident change is the updating of articles such as Balance of power (now briefly discussing George W. Bush's rapid shift in September 2001 from unilateralism to collaboration); Cold War evolution and interpretations (noting the continuity between interpretations of the forces that fueled it and interpretations of its end); and Dissent in wars (noting the ambivalence of the U.S and its political leaders toward the 1990s conflicts in the Balkans). Indeed, it now takes four articles to cover the complexities of the origins and end of the cold war, whereas the first edition managed with just one. Thorough updating of history and the collateral changes in U.S. foreign policy theories and strategies is evident throughout. The expanded encyclopedia also


reflects changes through 48 new essays, among them African Americans, Cultural imperialism, Gender, Multinational corporations, Outer space, Refugee policies, and, of course, Terrorism and counterterrorism. Others have been dropped, including those dealing with conscription, detente, the Fourteen Points, the Truman Doctrine, the King Cotton theory, and missionaries. This list argues in favor of retention rather than disposal of the old edition. Bibliographies have been thoroughly updated to account for new scholarship and thinking on enduring topics as well as to provide leads to additional resources on new ones. Most items include informative, brief descriptive annotations. See also references at the conclusion of each article also provide pointers for further exploration. By covering the somewhat specialized concerns of the foreign policy "establishment" (e.g., Deterrence, Extraterritoriality, Protectorates and spheres of influence ) as well as those forces the public observes in foreign relations (e.g., Nationalism, Race and ethnicity, Religion), the encyclopedia meets the needs of both academic users and the curious citizen seeking greater understanding of foreign affairs. The academic specialists who wrote the articles kept this latter audience in mind. The broad topical essays in the revised Encyclopedia of American Foreign Policy complement the country-by-country treatment and biographies of diplomats and statesmen that predominate in the Encyclopedia of U.S. Foreign Relations (Oxford, 1997). Both are essential to academic collections, and the former merits exposure to the broader audience public libraries serve. Keywords: American legislative system, encyclopedia

Encyclopedia of American Political Reform. Clucas, Richard A. Santa Barbara, Calif.: ABC-CLIO, 1996. This handy, ready-reference book offers brief encyclopedic entries on subjects ranging from "Abscam" to "Pork-Barrel Legislation" to the "Winograd Commission" to "ZeroBase Budgeting." Though the information is far from comprehensive, each short article (approximately 50 to 250 words in length) offers a clear, concise explanation of some (sometimes quite obscure) aspect of American political reform, and ends with a bibliographic reference. Easy to read and written in a bias-free style, this volume is enhanced by a useful chronology of contemporary political reform (1962-1996) and a very thorough bibliography. Unfortunately, some information can be difficult to locate. "Don't ask, don't tell" is not found under D for "Don't." Even if students were well versed enough to know that the phrase had something to do with the gay rights movement and looked under that heading, they still wouldn't find mention of it. They would have to use the see-also references under "Gay Rights Movement" that direct them to two articles: "Civil Rights Movement" and "Clinton, William J." The phrase is briefly explained in the article about Clinton. Still, this is a clearly written and useful resource. Keywords: American political reform, American politics, encyclopedia

Amending Issues, 1789-2002. Vile, John R., Santa Barbara, Calif.: ABC-CLIO, 2003. 288&itm=3 At first, Vile (political science, Middle Tennessee State U.) puzzled over how to glean the required one-fourth to one-third new material for a second edition from events and literature since 1995, when the first edition ended. He has, however, discovered not only much new material about the amendments and proposals he described, but also proposals that he had not known about.

He also considers proposed new or revised constitutions, both in the traditional books and pamphlets, and now on the Internet. He cites both legal and general works in the lists for further reading.

Encyclopedia of Public Health. Breslow, Lester. Macmillan Reference Books; 2002. Guarding the public's well-being requires the efforts of specialists in public health, public policy, nursing, medicine, government, and social science. In the aftermath of September 11 and the anthrax scare, as the number of health-related restrictions, caveats, procedures, and injunctions explode, the public health community has become increasingly concerned with the prevention and detection of disease and with health promotion. This four-volume compilation provides basic information on more than 900 programs, services, organizations, health behaviors, and the prevalence, epidemiology, and costs of communicable diseases. Although the work focuses on the United States, there are also references to worldwide problems. The preface states that the signed articles are written by experts, but only their affiliations, not their credentials, are provided. The alphabetically arranged articles have brief bibliographies and are interspersed with ample cross references. An extensive, annotated bibliography, arranged in logical subject categories, is included at the end of Volume 4. There is also an appendix of important documents and official statements concerning the well-being of the entire population. This user-friendly set is more extensive and up-to-date than the Dictionary of Public Health Promotion and Education (Sage, 1996) and is a highly recommended addition to reference collections in academic and large public libraries.

This latest in a variety of books on human rights issues that also includes Encyclopedia of Human Rights Issues Since 1945^B (Langley, 1999) and Human Rights in the United States: A Dictionary and Documents [RBB Fe 1 01] is by far the easiest to read and the simplest to interpret.

Also included is a key to the symbols used in the entries to identify such information as telephone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, Web sites addresses, and citations to documents, court decisions, further readings, and related entries. The publisher has provided an extensive index and a typeface that is inviting to look at and easy to read. The volume succeeds in making human-rights issues more understandable for the average person and in maintaining an evenhanded look at the issues. This exceptional book is well organized and well written and should be useful for academic, public, and high-school libraries.

World Encyclopedia of Cities: North America. Kurian, George T., Santa Barbara; CA: ABC-Clio, 1994. Kurian, who has edited several statistical and encyclopedic works, presents the first two volumes of a projected six-volume set covering major cities of the world together with a


gazetteer. Included here are eight- to 15-page descriptions of 136 cities from all states, the District of Columbia, and eight Canadian provinces. Cities are listed alphabetically, with narrative information obtained from a variety of secondary sources on topical categories like climate, history, landmarks, population, ethnic composition, government, economy, education, health, crime, and religion. Current statistical data, when available, were obtained from standard reference sources listed in the preface and highlighted in boxes under appropriate categories. The full-page maps provided for each city vary from detailed street maps not necessarily corresponding with city boundaries to the illustration of major arteries only, together with surrounding towns. Although selection was based on population and economic/social significance to the region, there is a New England bias. It is odd that New Hampshire and Maine are represented by four and three cities, respectively, while Columbia, South Carolina, and Raleigh, North Carolina (both state capitals with populations equal to or larger than those of the New England cities), are overlooked. In the end, Kurian's work presents about 200 fewer cities than Allan Carpenter's Facts About the Cities ( LJ 8/92), but it gives much more information (especially historical) for similar topical categories. A casual reading will reveal minor inconsistencies about familiar cities, but overall this set provides a convenient assemblage of well-formatted information for travelers, librarians, and researchers.

It is this change within the various fields of education and the fact that many of the entries in the first edition were written in the early 1980s which convinced the editors in 1990 of the need for a completely new edition of the Encyclopedia. The vast majority of entries in the second edition are completely new; in only a few cases, have entries from the first edition or from the supplementary volumes, been updated. New entries have also been commissioned on specific topics: sociology of education, girls and women in education, the history of education, anthropology, philosophy of education and instructional psychology.

Program officers and top agency officials at all levels of government are searching for new ways to ensure the programs can be delivered. Some funding will still be found in intergovernmental programs: grants from the federal government to the states or from the states to municipalities. But those grants, from a shrinking pool of resources, are more competitive. Thus, corporate and foundation funds have attracted more attention from public and third sector grant seekers. Competition for funding has never been fiercer.

Historic Preservation Grants ­ Certified Local Government Program The CLG Program integrates local governments with the national historic preservation program through activities that strengthen decision-making regarding historic places at the local level. Because local planning office staff often play key roles in CLG projects, the thread of historic preservation becomes woven into the fabric of local land-use policy. Local governments collect and analyze information on the location and significance of archeological and historic properties for use by preservation commissions and by local, county, and State agencies. Using grants awarded by SHPOs, CLGs may produce historic theme or context studies, cultural resource inventories, assessments of properties to determine their eligibility for local and National Register of Historic Places designation, building reuse and feasibility studies, design guidelines and conservation ordinances, and publications to educate the public about the benefits of historic preservation. Keywords: grants, historic, history, local government, preservation

Historic Preservation Grants - Historic Preservation Fund


The funds for the program are derived from Outer Continental Shelf mineral receipts. Since 1968, over $1 billion in grant funds has been awarded to 59 States, territories, Indian Tribes, local governments, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Out of a FY2004 appropriation of $34.5 million for HPF grants to the States, the average State allocation is about $573,000, which typically is matched by $382,000 in non-federal matching share contributions. Projects eligible for funding and the criteria used to select them are developed annually by the SHPO. Funding decisions are made by the State not NPS. Among the kinds of activities funded are the following: architectural, historical, archeological surveys; nominations to the National Register of Historic Places; staff work for historic preservation commissions; design guidelines and preservation plans; public outreach materials such as publications, videos, exhibits, and brochures; training for commission members and staff; and rehabilitation or restoration of National Registerlisted properties.

CRC Press. 2003. nt_id=&pc= Chaos Organization and Disaster Management offers a scholarly survey of disaster response behavior and management in the face of natural and manmade catastrophe.

It outlines the intrinsic bureaucratic constraints that impede the efficacy of government agencies, and reveals the disconnect between organizational and victim perceptions of disaster.

Handbook of Administrative History. Raadschelders, Jos C.N., Transaction Pub.1998.


1/ref=sr_1_1/102-1404922-2673704?v=glance&s=books Public administration is commonly assumed to be a young discipline, rooted in law and political science, with little history of its own. Likewise, teaching and scholarship in the field is often career oriented and geared either toward the research for immediately usable knowledge or guidelines and prescriptions for the future. Although most administrative scientists would acknowledge that their field has a history. Their time horizon is limited to the recent past. Raadschelders demonstrates that public administration has in fact a long standing tradition, both in practice and in writing; administration has been an issue ever since human beings recognized the need to organize themselves in order to organize the environment in which they lived. This history, in turn, underlines the need for administrators to be aware of the importance and contemporary impact of past decisions and old traditions. In seeking to go beyond the usual problem-solving and future-oriented studies of public administration, this volume adds greatly to the cognitive richness of this field of research. Indeed, the search for theoretical generalizations will profit from an approach that unravels long-term trends in the development of administration and government.

Handbooks of Public Economics: Vol. III (Handbooks in Economics). Auerbach, A.J., and Feldstein, M., North-Holland. 2002. The field of public economics has been changing rapidly in recent years, and the 18 chapters contained in volumes three and four of this handbook, survey many of the new developments. As a field, public economics is defined by its objectives rather than its techniques and much of what is new is the application of modern methods of economic


theory and econometrics to problems that have been addressed by economists for over 200 years. More generally the discussion of public finance issues also involves elements of political science, finance and philosophy. These connections are evidence in several of the chapters that follow. Public economics is the positive and normative study of government's effect on the economy. This volume attempts to explain why the government behaves as it does, how its behavior influences the behavior of private firms and households, and what the welfare effects of such changes in behavior are.

Improving Service Quality in the Global Economy. Milakovich, Michael. University of Miami, Coral Gables: FL. 1995. Organizations are struggling to improve customer-focused quality in today's highly competitive domestic and global markets. Better design, implementation, and daily management of quality improvement strategies is essential for survival. Quality improvement principles, when thoughtfully applied and appropriately modified to meet all types of customer demands, are a sound means to respond to changing markets. However, when various quality and productivity theories and methods are applied without changing the organizational culture, it is very difficult to consistently deliver quality results. This important new book focuses on quality improvement methods for


high performance in public and private services not covered in other books: applications focus on construction, education, government, insurance, public utilities, health care, and nonprofit services. Rather than detailing the technical processes to achieve inspection, planning, quality auditing, statistics, or risk assessment, this book presents step-by-step guidelines, recommendations, and action plans for changing service organizations to implement quality improvements. Sound theory and careful strategic planning are presented to assist readers in developing an understanding of how to select the essential elements of systems that best fit their customers' needs.

Public Administration as a Developing Discipline. Golembiewski, R.T., Dekker.1977. This book presents some future guidelines for the development of public administration. Keywords: academic discipline, handbook, public administration Public Administration in an Information Age: A Handbook. Snellen, I. Th. M., and W.B.H.J. van de Donk, IOS Press.1998. This book is a joint effort of researchers who have been involved in research-projects and programs that have been trying to chart and reflect upon the implications of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for Public Administration (Tilburg/Rotterdam, Kassel, Irvine, Nottingham/Glasgow). Since the fifties, computers had largely facilitated and the transformation of the minimal 'Night-Watch-state' into the modern 'Welfare-state', through their contribution to their effectivity, productivity and efficiency. In most Handbooks of Public Administration, computers are seen as neutral instruments and, most of the time, the role of computer technologies in the transformation of public administration is completely neglected. This 'deafening silence' is a great contrast with the way ICT's are actually changing public administration. The faster the developments in a field of study are, the more difficult it is to let the theories, related to that field of study, mature. In such circumstances, most statements will remain provisional and contextdependent. 25 years of research in Irvine (California) and Kassel (Germany) and more than 10 years of research in Tilburg/Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and about seven years of research in Glasgow/Nottingham (the United Kingdom) nonetheless enables the presentation of a modest image of public administration as it is entering the information age. Researchers in each of these groups have, nevertheless, not stopped trying to phrase theories about the implications of informatization for public administration with a more or less larges scope that are robust in different contexts and over longer periods of time. These results and theories, covering a broad set of elements of the body of knowledge of public administration, are presented in this volume. As the authors try to demonstrate in this book, informatization developments in public administration do not only challenge the existing body of knowledge of the public administration discipline, but they are also opening up new perspectives and paradigms for the study of public administration.

Indexing and Abstracting Services In Public Administration and Public Affairs

Business and Politics Business and Politics solicits articles within the broad area of the interaction between firms and political actors. Two specific areas are of particular interest to the journal. The first concerns the use of non-market corporate strategy. These efforts include internal organizational design decisions as well as external strategies. Internal organizational design refers to management structure, sourcing decisions, and transnational organization with respect to the firm's non-market environment. External strategies include legal tactics, testimony, lobbying and other means to influence policy makers at all levels of government and international institutions as an adjunct to market strategies of the firm. A second area of interest involves efforts by policy makers to influence firm behavior through regulatory, legal, financial, and other government instruments. Business and Politics does not favor any particular methodologies or approaches, but emphasizes analytical rigor and novel empirical analysis. The journal is particularly interested in submissions focusing on different regions of the world, cross-regional studies, and interdisciplinary work. It strongly encourages submissions from business, political science, law, economics, and public policy. The journal also publishes selected cases and


commentaries on the interaction of politics and corporate strategy. Cases, which apply theoretical ideas to focus on real world examples of policymaking, should be suitable for classroom use and cover recent events of relevance to business professionals and government officials. Commentaries, which include broad overviews of public policy regarding business political activity and trends in business politics, or discussion of recent articles published in Business and Politics, should be tailored for broad readership.

Critical Review Critical Review was founded in 1986 by Jeffrey Friedman, at the time a libertarian graduate student who was having grave doubts about his political creed. Unhappy with the isolation of libertarian thought from mainstream scholarship, he envisioned a journal that would bring the most intense criticism to bear on libertarian and free-market ideas in order to see which of these ideas, if any, would withstand scrutiny and contribute to our


understanding of the world. While Critical Review remains committed to inquiring openmindedly into whether laissez-faire capitalism is conducive to human welfare, its agenda is now much broader. We now seek to draw on all of the social sciences in examining the effects on human well-being--not just on material prosperity--of not only laissez-faire capitalism and the alternatives to it, but of all other conceivable forms of social life.

East-West Review of Social Policy Social Policy: never a dull moment. This has become more true now that many countries whose economies have been communist or in a very low stage of development, are in a rapid process towards becoming a market economy. But also Western welfare states are in a stage of transition at this time. In these states there are claims that the social legislation is too expensive, that it is contrary to a competitive approach and that social legislation makes people too passive, which in turn causes people to no longer actively seek work. The common interest in the developments in Social Policy in the different regions of the world calls for a new forum to exchange information, experience and practice. Under the guidance of Professor Andrzej Swiatkowski and Associate Professor Frans Pennings, the East-West Review of Social Policy will establish a new forum for contributions on Social


Policy, i.e. Labor Law, Social Security Law and general policy issues. To structure the wide range of topics related to these law fields, each issue will be dedicated to one or more topics.

Journal of Online Law The Journal of Online Law ("JOL") is an electronic publication of scholarly essays about law and online communications--law and cyberspace. The first issue was released early in June, 1995. "Scholarly essays" means thoughtful, readable pieces that analyze current trends in the law and predict future disputes and problems. A journal of scholarly essays is different from the typical "law review" or "law journal." The latter emphasizes comprehensiveness, thoroughness, and reliance on detailed footnotes. These characteristics have their place; we simply intend something different: a journal that is shorter, more easily readable, having wider appeal. Nor is JOL is the place for detailed review of particular court decisions, or for advice on specific situations. Countless publications like newsletters, law firm practice updates, and law reviews provide outlets for those different and worthy endeavors. We aim rather at concisely framing and exploring the key legal issues arising from networked communication; at speculating a bit about future trends; and in general, at trying to bring interested readers some interesting reading about the law of cyberspace.

New Political Economy

327 The aim of the journal is to create a forum for work, which seeks to bridge both the empirical and conceptual, divides which have characterized the field of political economy in the past. Few articles are likely to draw on more than a small part of the theoretical toolkit outlined above. But we shall encourage exploratory and innovative work, which draws on different disciplines, and which addresses core issues in the emerging research agenda. The existence of such a research agenda does not mean that everyone will agree. There will continue to be fierce arguments and debates among the protagonists of a new political economy, as well as with those who are not persuaded that the world has changed or that our ways of understanding it need amending. In seeking to assist the development of a distinctive research agenda we aim to bring together four key literatures which are beginning to analyze the contours of the new world order, and which offer a searching critique of different aspects of the old political economy.

New developments in information technology enable complex analyses to be carried out on a personal computer. Laptop computers and computer assisted telephone interviewing change fundamentally the way in which surveys are done. New statistical techniques are being developed which


are better suited to the kinds of data, which social researchers generally deal with. New approaches to qualitative data raise new theoretical and ethical problems. In face of all this change, social researchers, pressurized to produce results, often do not have time to keep up with the latest developments. It is to fill this gap that we are producing Social Research Update. Social Research Update will be published every three months or so and distributed to social researchers in the UK. Initially, it will be available without charge. Once it is established, we hope that we will be able to obtain support from other sources to cover its running expenses. Social Science Research.

Textbooks in Public Administration and Public Affairs

Generally speaking, a textbook is a publication used by schools or colleges for the formal study of a subject. Although always written by a specific individual, a textbook is the cumulative intellectual fruit of scholars in certain subjects, and offers a sketch of the whole subject or discipline. Textbooks can be used by beginners or others as a starting point to begin their exploration of a certain field, and can also be used by researchers as valuable tools to examine the whole system of knowledge in specific arenas. Normally, a textbook is updated every 2 or 3 years in order to reflect the new developments in the discipline and the interaction of theory and practice. This bibliography of textbooks in public administration and public affairs includes the most widely recognized textbooks in the field, and covers virtually every important topic in public administration and public affairs, public administration theory, public organizations, public budgeting, public personnel management, not-for-profit management, public finance, public performance measurement, public economics, etc.

Authority and Democracy: A General Theory of Government and Management. McMahon, Christopher. NJ: Princeton University Press, 1994. Should the democratic exercise of authority that we take for granted in the realm of government be extended to the managerial sphere? Exploring this question, Christopher McMahon develops a theory of government and management as two components of an integrated system of social authority that is essentially political in nature. He then considers where in this structure democratic decision making is appropriate. Keywords: public administration, ethics, democracy, textbook

Bureaucratic Responsibility. Burke, John P. Maryland: Johns Hopkins Univ. Press. 2000. How much do bureaucrats know? And how much should they tell? In "Bureaucratic Responsibility", John Burke moves from case study to theory to explore what is perhaps the most basic problem confronting modern democracy: How are we to make those bureaucracies upon which government relies both accountable and responsive? Responsibility, Burke contends, must not be primarily to the formally defined terms and obligations of a particular office, but to the institutions of American democracy and the public consent. "Bureaucratic Responsibility" is a provocative combination of descriptive analysis, political theory, and prescriptive speculation-- and makes a timely case for a more responsible bureaucracy.

Financing Government in a Federal System. Break, George F. Washington DC: Brooking institute, 1980. Keywords: government finance, public administration, public management, textbook Fiscal Administration. 4th ed. Mikesell, John L., Wadsworth Publishing Co., 1995. As did the earlier editions, this volume sticks to two distinguishing principles. First, a public affairs student must have an idea of where the money comes from, not just sort of, but really. As an earlier preface observed, "If armies move on their stomachs, then certainly governments crawl on their purses!" That is no less true for the 1990s than it was for the 1980s; those lacking an understanding of revenue options, systems, and policies will miss out on much of the fun. The second principle is that learning public financial administration and budgeting requires running the numbers. Most questions and exercises at the end of the chapters are not speculative in nature but require the student to develop an intimate relationship with pencil and paper, calculator, or computer. That emphasis is absolutely intentional. Keywords: budgeting, fiscal management, public administration, public management, textbook

The authors enlighten the relationship of government and markets by emphasizing the actual rather than the ideal workings of governments and by reuniting the insights of economics with those of political science.

The Promise of Representative Bureaucracy: Diversity and Responsiveness in a Government Agency. Selden, Sally Coleman. NY: M. E. Sharpe, 1997. This prize-winning study examines the impact of the employment of women and ethnic and racial minorities in public organizations on the implementation of government programs by those agencies. Driving the study is the question of whether the concept of "representative government" applies also to the "permanent government"-- the bureaucracy. What difference does it make if an administration is either more or less representative of the population it serves? To what extent, if at all, is an agency's responsiveness to different segments of the public a function of the demographic composition of the agency itself?

An Inner Voice for Public Administration. Murray, Nancy, CT: Praeger Publishers. 1997. Murray seeks to demonstrate how Eastern philosophy can contribute to the development of Western public administration theory and practice. She views the end of the 20th


century as an epoch-making time in which the limitations of modern thought need to be examined. Murray shares the belief held by many public administration scholars that a reconceptualization of the field is in order. She contributes to that end by focusing on individual administrators and the problems they face as they continuously struggle to balance political exigencies and governmental processes in a society that simply does not understand. As caretakers of the public trust, administrators deserve a profession that provides a philosophy of administration designed to guide them in the maturation process that is essential to self-development.

Democracy, Bureaucracy and the Study of Administration. Stivers, Camilla. Colorado: Westview Press. 2000. This anthology addresses several of the most central ideas in the field of public administration. These ideas are as relevant to public budgeting as they are to performance measurement or human resource management. Collectively and individually the essays explore what Dwight Waldo referred to as the "political theories" of public administration: issues that are ultimately irresolvable yet crucial to understanding the nature of public administrative practice. How can democracy and efficiency be balanced? Can there be a science of administration? How should we think about administrative accountability? What is the nature of the relationship between citizen and state? Is professionalism an adequate mechanism for ensuring accountability? How efficient can or should bureaucracy be? What is proper leadership by administrators hoping to address political democracy and managerial efficiency?

Government Works: Why Americans Need the Feds. Esman, Milton J., NY: Cornell University Press. 2000. What is the proper role of government in American life? This is the principal controversy in contemporary American politics. Milton J. Esman believes that the United States suffers not from too much government but from too little. Most Americans today proclaim pride in their democracy, but they do not trust Washington. Esman shows how American conservatives have, for the last quarter-century, hammered away at the federal government, attacking its size, its inefficiencies, the limits it places on personal freedom, and its intervention in what conservatives believe should be free and untrammeled market transactions. Such commentators have effectively seized the initiative, and their antigovernment viewpoint now dominates the public discourse on politics. "This bias runs contrary to the main thrust of American political experience," Esman writes, "and is detrimental to the well-being of the nation on the brink of the new millennium."

Public Administration: Understanding Management, Politics and Law in the Public Sector. 4th Edition. Rosenbloom, David. NY: McGraw-Hill Higher Education. 1998. Public administration is one of the most widely adopted books for both undergraduate and graduate levels. The basis of the appeal is the three part framework of management, politics, and the law. Its theme is that all three perspectives are central to public administration, and that ignoring one or another leads to failures in both the practice of and in academic treatments of the field. This edition continues to refer to these three perspectives, but it divides management into two subsets: traditional and "the new public management".

She investigates the significant role of these workers in the implementation of welfare reform, the role of public management in changing the system of welfare under the reform law, and management's impact on results. In this case ensuring the delivery of welfare benefits and services to eligible clients. Over a period of two years, Riccucci traveled specifically to eleven different cities, and from interviews and a large national survey, she gathered quantitative results from cities in such states as New York, Texas, Michigan, and Georgia that were selected because of their range of policies, administrative structures, and political cultures. General welfare data for all fifty states is included in this rigorous analysis, demonstrating to all with an interest in any field of public administration or public policy that management does indeed matter.

Public Management Reform and Innovation Research, Theory, and Application. Frederickson ,George and Jocelyn Johnston M. AL: University of Alabama Press. 1999. Leading scholars present the most complete, as well as the most advanced, treatment of public management reform and innovation available. Given the growing desire to reinvent government, there are hard questions to be asked: Is the private sector market model suitable and effective when applied to reforming public and governmental organizations? What are the major political forces affecting reform efforts in public management? How is public management reform accomplished in a constitutional democratic government? How do the values of responsiveness, professionalism, and managerial excellence shape current public management reforms? In this volume, editors H. George Frederickson and Jocelyn M. Johnston bring together scholars with a shared interest in empirical research to confront head-on the toughest questions public managers face in their efforts to meet the demands of reform and innovation. Throughout the book, the authors consider the bureaucratic resistance that results when downsizing and reinvention are undertaken simultaneously, the dilemma public managers face when elected executives set a reform agenda that runs counter to the law, and the mistaken belief that improved management can remedy flawed policy.

Reinventing Government or Reinventing Ourselves: The Role of Citizen Owners in Making a Better Government. Schachter, Hindy Lauer. NY: State University of New York, 1997.

391 Challenging the assumptions of the "reinventing-government" movement now in vogue, this book unites a call for active citizenship with the current concern for improving public-agency performance. The author argues that citizens should not be viewed as customers of government, as reinventing-government advocates assume, but rather as government's owners. By analyzing a turn-of-the-century model of urban reform that depicts this relationship between citizens and government, Schachter shows how reinvigorating an active public is essential to increasing agency efficiency and responsiveness. She offers two strategies for moving toward active citizenship: better citizenship education, including service learning and public agencies' provision of betterfocused information for their owners. This book will spark much-needed debate on the role of active citizens in administrative reform. Keywords: public administration, public management, reinventing government, textbook

Organization Theories and Public Administration. Davis, Charles R. C.O.: Greenwood Publishing Group. 1996.


This new work offers a substantive political theory approach to organizational theory. It differs significantly from most organizational perspectives in that it applies political theory to four prevalent organizational models found in administration today.
