The trends and practices of public administration are ever changing and it is essential that they be appraised from time to time.

Each chapter is written by a recognized expert and addresses the following questions:

--What are the underlying factors influencing new or emerging trends?

--What issues are unresolved? Why?

--What do we know--or not know--about the subject?

--How can we find out more? What research is needed?
