Recovering the Public Management Variable: Lessons from Schools, Prisons, and Armies.
Dilulio, John J., Jr.
Public Administration Review, v49 n2 p127-33 Mar-Apr 1989
The author recommends an approach to public management studies that teaches how public management affects the quality of citizens' lives. Using examples from the literature on schools, prisons, and armies, he argues that public management studies should attempt to specify what ends given public organizations ought to achieve and how best to achieve them.
