Excerpt

This book brings to the field of public administration more than a series of related chapters. In attempting to rethink administrative theory, the contributors support the idea mat dunking about theoretical perspectives is crucial for refocusing the study of public administration. The essays attempt to suggest new possibilities in improving administrative theory and public administration. The book has grown out of essays originally published in me journal of Administrative Theory and Praxis in December 1999. The contributors had the opportunity to revise and expand their arguments into full-length articles for mis anthology. As with most anthologies, me chapters offer a wide range of styles and subjects, and yet me book as a whole provides a key to understanding the context of the essays that are contained within it.

The compilation of this book has given me the great pleasure of working with my colleagues who are closely associated with me Public Administration Theory Network (PAT-Net). I should like to express my appreciation to all contributors. They have helped me at every stage, keeping me futuristic theme(s) in their writing as well as meeting deadlines. I cannot take credit for their ideas expressed in this volume, but can for any flaws in compiling me book. I am particularly indebted to Lianne Campodonico for much needed encouragement and helpful criticisms, as well as her editorial support and patience. I also like to thank Richard Box, the editor of Administrative Theory and Praxis, for letting us develop me book based on the symposium issue.
