Public administration faces an interesting paradox. Along with comparative government,public law, international law, and political theory, it was one of the fields that shaped the new American Political Science Association a century ago. Today, however, public administration sits in a disciplinary backwater. For the last generation, scholars have sought to save or replace it with fields of study like implementation, public management, and formal bureaucratic theory. The debate, in fact, has developed to the point that “traditional public administration” has become a nearly universal pejorative to criticize an intellectual approach whose time has come — and gone.”
