Understanding Canadian Public Administration offers excellent coverage of all the important and significant areas of public administration. While still providing a background of the theory and practice of public administration in Canada, the new fourth edition has been updated to reflect political changes in recent years. New topics-such as the financial crisis, the proroguing crisis of 2008/2009, Aboriginal Self-Government, and the Public Service Renewal Action Plan-have been added. Content on departmental organizations, agents of Parliament, political staff, and Human Resources Management have also been updated. In discussing these new topics, as well as information from the previous edition, Understanding Canadian Public Administration remains an easily accessible introductory text that is neither encyclopaedic nor esoteric. It provides you with an overview of essential theoretical issues in the field and then uses that theoretical grounding to examine the actual practice of public administration. The text compares the roles of the private and public sectors and examines the impact that the latter has had on the former. From a practical approach, it analyzes how public policy is actually set within the context of a federal state.

The true measure of the successful practice of public service is its ability to remain faithful to the tenets of democratic society. This introductory text links the practice of public administration to the core concepts of American democracy. It covers the nuts and bolts of public administration in the context of "delivering democracy" in public service - providing what the public really wants as opposed to what self-serving bureaucracies may call for. Chapters in "Democracy and Public Administration" discuss the functional topics covered in other texts, but from the perspective of this democratic ideal. Each chapter is written by an expert in the area, and summarizes previous research in the area, presents the author's research and thought, and offers ways in which practitioners can apply the concepts discussed to their daily work.
