Description : "Kettl′s Politics of the Administrative Process continues to resonate well with students of public administration because it discusses key concepts and theories in a straightforward, cogent, and contemporary manner that both faculty and students appreciate." —Brian Bulla, Appalachian State University Efficient public administration requires a delicate balance—the bureaucracy must be powerful enough to be effective, but also accountable to elected officials and citizens. Donald F. Kettl understands that the push and pull of political forces in a democracy make the functions of bureaucracy contentious, but no less crucial. Politics of the Administrative Process gives students a realistic, relevant, and well-researched view of the field while remaining reader-friendly with engaging vignettes and rich examples. With a unique focus on policymaking and politics, the Eighth Edition continues its strong emphasis on politics, accountability, and performance. Give your students the SAGE Edge!

Description : In System under Stress, The Challenge to 21st Century Democracy, Third Edition, Donald F. Kettl looks at the latest stress to hit the system--the financial crisis of 2008. In his brief, gripping narrative, Kettl assesses how well the U.S. political system responds under extraordinary pressure--from 9/11, to Hurricane Katrina, to the Great Recession-- and asks if the government is ready to face that next challenge. A well-known scholar, commentator, and writer in the areas of federalism and governance, Kettl asks the hard questions, makes a credible and persuasive argument, and crafts a readable case study that is fascinating and thought-provoking.

Description : Written as the core text for the administrative law course in MPA programs, this comprehensive book uniquely places administrative law within the context of the political system. The focus is on how our public administrators shape and administer public policies while having to uphold procedural due process standards. The case approach is played down for a more direct, descriptive systems approach which stresses that administrative law can only be fully appreciated in the context of the pressures stemming from the larger political system. Administrative Law in the Political System 4th Ed, offers a descriptive, analytical approach making the subject more accessible for readers, as well as providing comprehensive coverage of administrative law, its principles, doctrines, and cases in a non-technical language. The author employs systems theory to convey that administrators must respond to not only legal demands, but also to socio-economic and political systemic demands. The book also covers both historical and the latest case law, as well as the most recent scholarly articles and political happenings in order to place administrative law in the most current context. Lastly, Warren examines the impact that neo-conservative politics, the judicially sanctioned federalist revival, and the post-"9/11" mindset have had on the development of administrative law.

Description : This popular casebook, with its unique approach focusing on real problems and real administrative practice, is now out in a new edition. The latest Supreme Court cases and the hottest issues, like the ethical issues involved in the "torture memos," have been added. The new edition, however, retains its distinctive characteristics of using problems as the primary pedagogical tool, including problems that do not involve courts; raising the ethical issues peculiar to government lawyers; and orienting the course around administrative law practice, rather than theory. While theory is not ignored, it arises out of the crucible of reality-based problems, providing a basis for students to appreciate the theory.

Description : Applying a rigorously theoretical approach, Im (Kangwon National U., Korea) argues that bureaucrats have obtained policymaking power owing to their specialization, technique and access to information. These bureaucrats tend to be without political ideology, a propensity that Im argues is dangerous to democracy when found in a leader. Following a detailed analysis of bureaucrats, bureaucracy, and two lines of political thought?liberal democracy and communism?Im proposes an alternative and improved solution to current bureaucratic forms of power which he calls "administrative democracy". c.

Description : This trusted text provides students who plan to enter government service and those engaged in mid-career education for public administration with a readable and interesting treatment of the field of administrative law, and more broadly of the range of public law that governs public management. The book is based on the premise that there is a complex, ongoing interaction between law and administration in the United States , and that administrative law problems are not only legal but also administrative and political. Recognizing that attacks on rules and administrative law processes over the last two decades have made this a difficult time for public managers and have resulted in a variety of new state and executive orders, the authors explain the sources, operation, and consequences of such changes. The book takes the role of public contracting seriously throughout and engages contemporary challenges that arise in governance, including in nonprofit and for-profit organizations working with government.

Description : In this comprehensive analysis of social systems of taxation and budgeting, the authors provide detailed examples from ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, Greece and Rome, the Middle Ages in Europe, and modern times to show how governments through the ages have raised money and spent it. They examine the two essential activities of government--taxing and spending--against the background of the societies in which they were imbedded and the development of government's administrative capacities. They also argue that government mobilization of resources involves critical human concerns--waging war and providing for the welfare of the people. ISBN 0-671-54617-1: $24.95.
