Public Administration and the State A Postmodern Perspective by Michael W. Spicer

Public Administration and the State A Postmodern Perspective


Public Administration and the State A Postmodern Perspective by Michael W. Spicer


This short and well-written volume provides a framework for understanding the role of the state in contemporary public administration. - Political Science Quarterly; As theorizing about the state is taken by public administration scholars to be a job for political scientists, Spicer makes a valuable contribution by bringing this topic into the realm of public administration.... Spicer does a brilliant job of making his case.... [His] argument is carefully and credibly constructed and sustained throughout. This book is a first-rate contribution to the theoretical literature in public administration and one that I would highly recommend. - Administrative Theory and Praxis
