Handbook of Organization Theory and Management: The Philosophical Approach, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few subjects are more influenced by philosophy than the form of governance that guides and administers public affairs, yet much of the literature about public administration remains silent about this connection. Handbook of Organization Theory and Management: The Philosophical Approach, Second Edition identifies and discusses many of the most important philosophies and movements that have influenced contemporary public administration. This textbook begins with the classics, explores the postmoderns, and ends with 21st Century views. The text mentions many of greatest, and a few of the lesser-known thinkers that have crafted the philosophical lens that we use to define and understand public administration.

Book News Annotation:

Organized chronologically, this volume examines some major philosophies and movements that have influenced contemporary public administration. Aimed at advanced students of public administration and policy, it begins with a discussion of the ideas of Plato and the invention of political science. Subsequent contributions from leading scholars address such topics as the political thought of Woodrow Wilson and the existentialist public administrator. The final section is devoted to 21st-century alternatives such as the multicratic organization. Lynch teaches public administration at Louisiana State U., and Cruise teaches health and community services at the California State U. at Chico.
