In its October 2020 issue, ACRL’s Choice Magazine recommends Strategies for Governing: Reinventing Public Administration for a Dangerous Century (Cornell University Press, 2019). From the review: “Is it time for public administration to broaden its vision? Roberts (Univ. of Mass., Amherst) puts forth the provocative argument that the field has narrowed to a public management approach centered on processes within administrative states, and he advocates for public administration to embrace a global perspective and add country-level analysis. Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty.”
I’ve just published a short comment in Canadian Public Administration that summarizes the argument in my book Strategies for Governing. Open access here.
In Perspectives on Politics, Jennifer Selin reviews Strategies for Governing: “Overall, Strategies for Governing has broad implications for research, teaching, and practice in a variety of disciplines and subfields. The book’s insights provide readers with fresh perspectives on important research questions in public administration, public policy, American politics, international relations, and comparative politics. Perhaps most notably, Roberts encourages us to return to first principles and to address the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of government.” Review here.
