Additional Book Details

Ten years after the first edition, Gender Images in Public Administration has been extensively updated to reflect recent research and new theoretical literature. Like its predecessor, this new edition applies a gender lens to the field of public administration, looking at issues of status, power, leadership, legitimacy, and change. Also included is an examination of women′s historical progress toward their current status in federal, state, and local governments. Stivers also assesses the peculiar nature of the organizational reality women experience, and their place in society at large as it is shaped by the administrative state.


Praise for the First Edition:

"Because so much of the way we frame our world is taken for granted, we remain blissfully oblivious to the assumptions which serve as the foundation for our relationships, rules, and policies. Stivers calls a halt to this blissful oblivion. By holding gender up to the light, she shows how it affects our interpretations of legitimacy, entitlement, and power."
