Blurb/Shorttext:
Leonard D. White was considered by many to be the embodiment of American Public Administration in the 1930's and 1940's. This is no longer the case today. White is rarely mentioned in contemporary textbooks or scholarly journals. This book explores his contributions to the field as a teacher/scholar and practitioner. It covers his early writings, including the discipline's first comprehensive textbook, as well as his epic, historical study of the origins of American Public Administration practice. The book also examines White's roles as a teacher, scholar, and senior civil servant. It provides an analysis of the paradigm shift that occurred in post-World War II Public Administration. This shift represented a change from the classical model of administration to a focus on organizational decision making. The book concludes with a discussion of White's gradual disappearance from the field's intellectual radar as a result of this paradigm shift.
