Develop an understanding of how values connote principles, goals, or standards that an individual, class, organization, or society holds dear with this affordable CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS version of PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION: CLASHING VALUES IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF PUBLIC POLICY. This textbook uses a "clash of values" approach that gets to the heart of how administrators make decisions and implement public policy. Case studies and examples capture the intricacies of this unique area of political science. You'll also investigate the role public administrators play throughout the policy process, including targeting a problem, placing it on the government's agenda, structuring the alternatives that elected officials use, implementing public policy through the programs and procedures they largely determine, and finally, evaluating the success or failure of a policy. Finally, you'll explore the reorganization of the national bureaucracies following the 9/11 attacks that prompted the enactment of the PATRIOT Act and the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security.
