This ground-breaking Handbook on Gender and Public Administration brings together leading experts in a rapidly growing field of study to explore the emerging contexts of gender and public administration. Capturing the many facets of this dynamic trend, the book explores gender equity and further examines masculinity, intersectionality and beyond binary conceptions of gender.
 
Chapters written by expert contributors provide an in-depth analysis of the history, theory and context of gender equity alongside the intersection of gender and traditional public administration topics such as budgeting, personnel, organizations, ethics, performance and representative democracy. Furthermore, it investigates gender dynamics in international, governmental, non-profit, policy and academic contexts, highlights the progress made, and identifies the ongoing challenges.
 
This timely Handbook will be an excellent resource for scholars in public administration who wish to explore gender and the broader questions of social equity, as well as scholars new to the field of public administration and gender. Following a growing movement to incorporate gender into public administration curriculum this book will also prove a useful guide for faculty providing these courses.
 
Critical Acclaim
‘Shields and Elias have assembled an amazing line up of scholars who demonstrate why gender is central to addressing the big questions of public administration. Covering a diversity of contexts and concepts, this edited volume will be the leading text on the study of gender and public administration for the next generation of scholars. At a time when major public policy challenges continue to have differential impacts along gender lines, this text could not be any more timely. I look forward to the dialogue it will inspire.’
– Jessica Sowa, University of Delaware, US

‘This Handbook reinforces, continues, and bolsters a critically important conversation in public administration and management – the role of gender representation. Authors in this book critically unpack the notion of gender and its effects on public service and public servants. The work is an excellent addition to our canon and will make an immediate positive difference for current and future scholars and practitioners.’
– Staci Zavattaro, University of Central Florida, US

‘This Handbook is cause for celebration: A distinguished line-up of contributors tackling gender in public administration from a rich and timely array of perspectives. Perceptive, stimulating, and useful for administrators, scholars and teachers. A welcome resource that will become a classic!’
– Camilla Stivers, Cleveland State University, US
