The Public Administration Theory Primer by H. George Frederickson

As a new student to public administration this book is a useful tool. It explains the current top theories along with variations, strengths, and weaknesses. I would give it four stars for being as scholarly as it is.

I give it three stars due to the nature of the writing. Granted it is a book about scholarly work. The language and phraseology used is not necessarily for a beginner. I looked up a couple words in the dictionary. Most I tried to figure out by context. My analogy is the book is like giving a two year old a Guinness. Way too thick and hard to digest for someone new to the field. Im also not a fan of the APA style of writing. That Ill have to get over due to the field Im studying. Still disruptive to the way I read.

The Public Administration Theory Primer explores how the science and art of public administration is definable, describable, replicable, and cumulative. The authors survey a broad range of theories and analytical approaches—from public institutional theory to theories of governance—and consider which are the most promising, influential, and important for the field. This book paints a full picture of how these theories contribute to, and explain, what we know about public administration today. The third edition is fully revised and updated to reflect the latest developments and research in the field including more coverage of governments and governance, feminist theory, emotional labor theory, and grounded research methodology. Expanded chapter conclusions, additional real-world application examples throughout, and a brand-new online supplement with sample comprehensive exam questions and summary tables make this an even more valuable resource for all public administration students.
