'This volume provides a refreshingly accessible overview of public management/public administration (PM/PA). In language that is devoid of academic jargon and pompous statements, Pollitt presents a wonderful conceptual map including the dominant theories, methods, PM/PA scholars, the interaction with practitioners, and future challenges. It is, indeed, an advanced introduction from which two very different audiences can profit. Ph.D. students preparing for their comprehensive exams will find this book to be a great gateway to further study. Mid- to upper-level practitioners in executive (MPA or certificate) programs will find this book to be the kind of concise and usable summary they can work with. Both doctoral students and practitioners will benefit, because the author has proven to be a master of brevity and clarity.' -- Jos C.N. Raadschelders, The Ohio State University, US and University of Leiden, the Netherlands 'This masterly introduction reflects Christopher Pollitt's decades of experience as a practitioner, adviser and top international scholar. It offers a balanced and judicious account of how this complex and fascinating subject has developed, how it can be approached and its possible futures. And above all, it shows us why public management and administration is so important in our world today.' -- Christopher Hood, All Souls College, Oxford, UK 'Christopher Pollitt's new book is a bright contribution to the literature on public management and administration. The overall picture of the academic field is written from a pluralistic variety of interesting and relevant perspectives. His endeavour to picture relevant megatrends in the field, and to draw some sketches of the future, shows his wide-ranging and thorough-going mastering of the subject. Pollitt's humorous and eloquent writing style makes it a true pleasure to read the book. -- Walter Kickert, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands 'This truly is an Advanced Introduction, by one of the field's great masters. It is a book that we have long needed and, in a style that is eminently accessible and enjoyable, plows important new ground. It is a must-read for students just starting out and for scholars charting the field's future.' -- Don Kettl, University of Maryland, US 'Christopher Pollitt's advanced introductory book to the field of public administration and management offers an insightful account of how an intricate field such as public administration developed, of how it must be approached and of the prospects for the near future. Through his eloquent and humorous writing style, reading his work is an immensely enjoyable undertaking. . . Its eminently accessible style makes it a must-read for new students, public administrators and veterans endeavouring to chart out the discipline's future.' -- Administration
