Description:

In this revised and expanded reader, Thompson brings 30 classic articles and book chapter reprints together under one cover--giving students a grounding in the history, development, and current status of public personnel policy in the United States. In addition to discussion of hot topics, Thompson includes such important primary source materials as the Pendleton Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1972, the Volcker Commission's Leadership for Governance findings, and key Supreme Court decisions. Enhanced by the editor's extensively revised section introductions, these readings give students a sense of the rich historical legacy of the field while casting light on contemporary issues and policy dilemmas.
