Beckettbook

From the publisher: Filled with practical tools and guidelines, this book addresses an essential competence for public managers--incorporating governance and law in public administration. It links democratic constitutional values to administrative decision-making and practices by stressing how public law authorizes, informs, and democratically constrains public servants in fulfilling public policies.

The author addresses important aspects of governance in chapters that discuss democratic values of the rule of law, constitutional law, legislation and policy, administrative law, judicial practice, contract law, and tort law. The book also considers the practical aspects of public management (such as tax collection, benefits administration, personnel administration, and more), with application guidelines and techniques based on thorough legal grounding. Plentiful cases, case discussions, additional sources, and discussion questions amplify the material.
