Diversity and Affirmative Action in Public Service

ASPA CLASSICS

Conceived and sponsored by the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA), the ASPA Classics series will publish volumes on topics that have been, and continue to be, central to the contemporary development of public administration. The ASPA Classics are intended for classroom use, and may be quite suitable for libraries and general reference collections. Drawing from the Public Administration Review (PAR) and other journals related to the ASPA sections, each volume in the series is edited by a scholar who is charged with presenting a thorough and balanced perspective on an enduring issue. These journals now represent some six decades of collective wisdom. Yet, many of the writings collected in the ASPA Classics might not otherwise easily come to the attention of future public managers. Given the explosion in research and writing on all aspects of public administration in recent decades, these ASPA Classics anthologies should point readers to definitive or groundbreaking authors whose voices should not be lost in the cacophony of the newest administrative technique or invention.

Public servants carry out their responsibilities in a complex, multi-dimensional environment. The mission of ASPA Classics is to provide the reader with a historical and first hand view of the development of the topic at hand. As such, each ASPA Classics volume presents the most enduring scholarship, often in complete, or nearly complete, original form on the given topic. Each volume will be devoted to a specific continuing concern to the administration of all public sector programs. Early volumes in the series address public sector performance, public service as commitment, and diversity and affirmative action in public service. Future volumes will include equally important dialogues on classic ideas as enduring ideas, reinventing government, public budgeting, and public service ethics.

The volume editors are to be commended for volunteering for the substantial task of compiling and editing these unique collections of articles which might not otherwise be readily available to scholars, teachers, and students.
