Public Administration in Canada: Brief Edition is an invaluable reference text for both instructors and students. This text offers the reader an appreciation of the theories of bureaucratic action and then examines the nuts and bolts of public administration - the structures, the relations and the significant process. Drawing on the success of the Kernaghan/Siegel text, Public Administration in Canada: Brief Edition has removed the practical applications at the request of our reviewer panel to better conform to the market's need for a shorter book. This new edition contains all the pertinent topics needed to help your students succeed in this course.
Paul Barker teaches political science at Brescia University College, London, Ontario. Professor Barker received his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He has written articles on public policy that have appeared in Canadian Public Administration, Canadian Public Policy, and the Canadian Journal of Law and Society.
