By Jeffrey L. BrudneyPublic managers today must confront daunting challenges imposed by shifting policy agendas, constrained financial resources combined with demands for public services, and increasing interdependence among public, private, and third-sector parties. In this volume, leading scholars contribute advances in the theory, methods, and practice in this burgeoning field. The selections address four key topics: the nature and impact of public management; creative new methods for public management research; reform, reinvention, innovation, and change; and new models and frameworks for understanding and improving public management.
