Description:

Written with present and future public managers in mind, ORGANIZATION THEORY AND PUBLIC MANAGEMENT arms students with the theoretical and conceptual knowledge necessary to be effective managers. The text examines each major school-of-thought by taking a chronological approach. This approach enables the reader to understand each major school in the context in which it emerged and gained prominence. Placing each school in historical context through the use of a chronological approach to the examination of theory allows for a deeper understanding of the material and encourages the reader to develop his or her own thoughts and ideas.
