In this updated third edition of Mastering Public Administration, by Brian R. Fry and Jos C. N. Raadschelders, each chapter spotlights a significant theorist in the field, covering his/her life, research, writings, and impact, introducing the discipline's most important scholarship in a memorable and approachable manner. The combination of biographical narrative with explanation and analysis makes abstract theories understandable while showing how subject scholars’ ideas relate to each other, providing much-needed context. The book’s chronological organization shows the evolution of public administration theory over time. A new “Legacy in Contemporary Scholarship” feature at the end of every chapter links each theorist’s work to current and cutting-edge research, underscoring just how much a foundational body of work can influence and inspire present-day scholars.
