A fresh alternative to the typical public administration text, Garvey?s is the first text to combine a solid analytical framework with in-depth cases portraying the vital, human side of public administration. Garvey?s cases turn abstract concepts into human narratives, guiding students through the kind of ongoing, multi-level problems real public administrators face.
