Community Development and Public Administration Theory : Promoting Democratic Principles to Improve Communities, Hardback Book

Community Development and Public Administration Theory : Promoting Democratic Principles to Improve Communities Hardback

Edited by Ashley E. Nickels, Jason D. Rivera

Part of the Routledge Research in Public Administration and Public Policy series

Description

The concept of community development is often misunderstood, holding different meanings across different academic disciplines.

Moreover, the concept of community development has been historically abstracted, not only in the way the concept has been conceptualized in academic studies, but also by the way in which practitioners use the term in the vernacular.

Departing from traditional definitions of community development, this volume applies the New Public Service (NPS) perspective of Public Administration to community development to illustrate how public administrators and public managers can engage in community development planning and implementation that results in more equitable and sustainable long-term outcomes.

This book will be of interest to practitioners and researchers in public administration/management, public administration theory, community development, economic development, urban sociology, urban politics, and urban planning.
