“Don Kettl's newest edition of Politics of the Administrative Process continues to be a fantastic introduction to the theory and practice of public administration. Its effective melding of essential concepts, major theories, and cogent case studies makes it an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the field for both pre-service and in-service students.”
“I have used Kettl’s Politics of the Administrative Process for close to 10 years now and haven’t found a better one. It covers everything I want to cover in class. What I like best are the case studies. I found these very useful when putting my class together for this semester. I especially like the way they highlight issues in all levels of government, not just the federal level. The high quality ancillary material that comes with the text, the PowerPoints and text banks, build a great foundation for students as they move through the rest of the book.”
“My first encounter with Kettl’s Politics of the Administrative Process was from one of former colleagues, who had used this book before. The reasons for using this text are the straightforward stories, easy reading, and comprehensive coverage. I like it because it offers students to due degree of exposure to theories and practical realities. The best part of the text is the way the text presents cases and stories to attract students’ attention and induce them to think.”
