Issues and Applications from the Front Lines of Government

Second Edition
Edited by:

February 2005 | 180 pages | CQ Press
Distinguished author and editor Alan Ehrenhalt has chosen 40 articles that represent the best of what Governing has to offer: objective reporting about the issues that matter most, engaging writing by first-class journalists, and the ability to tell a good story while imparting important lessons about governance. With a focus on current controversies, hot policy debates, and recent political machinations, each reading comes from an issue published in the last two years. An ideal collection of applied case studies for public administration and management courses, this handy reader is especially useful for those instructors looking for more state and local coverage to supplement core texts.This second edition continues to focus on key management functions such as personnel, performance, and leadership, as well as on the impact of changes in federalism, technology, and regulation. This edition also includes more policy coverage on crime, health, and education as well as other pressing concerns like homeland security and ethics in government.
