Meaning, Scope, and Significance

Public administration is an aspect of a more generic concept of administration. Therefore, before understanding the meaning of public administration, it is necessary to understand the meaning of the word ‘administration’ The English word ‘administer’ is derived from a combination of two Latin words ad and ministrare meaning ‘to serve’ or ‘to managimfiterally, the term “administration’ means management of affairs- public or private.

An analysis of the above definitions indicates that the term public administration has been used in two senses i.e., wider sense and narrower sense. In the wider sense (broader sense), public administration includes the activities of all the three branches of the government, that is, legislature, executive and judiciary.

This view has been taken by Woodrow Wilson, L.D. White, Marshall Dimock, F.A. Nigro and Pfiffner. By contrast, public administration in the narrower sense includes the activities of only the executive branch of the government.

This view has been taken by Simon, Gulick, Ordway Tead, Fayol and Willoughby. It must be noted here that Willoughby even made a distinction between executive power and administrative power and restricted the use of the term ‘administration’ to the activities of the administrative branch only.

In other words, he has given administration the status of a * fourth branch’ of government (other three being legislature, executive and judiciary). Albert Lepawsky remarked : “Willoughby’s recognition of administration as a fourth branch of government is the most extreme, but probably the most logical result of the strict separation of administration and politics initiated by Wilson.”

This is so far the most holistic coverage of Pub Ad esp. for NET aspirants. It covers all the theoretical approaches along with a sizeable portion of public policy. Its language is really simple and to the point. Its a sufficient text for PG students as well. I think it would be better if you begin with this one & subsequently move on to R K Sapru etc.
