This is the most up-to-date assessment of all aspects of the People's Liberation Army.

This first-of-its-kind project documents the contributions of women in public administration. It contains eight research-based case studies on women who have contributed to the field - academics, government managers, and activists. The women profiled are not from a random sample - they were selected based on their contributions to the theory and practice of public service. Each chapter relates the life and work of each subject to the broad issues faced by today's public servants. The result is a book that is both instructive and inspirational, and that should be read by every aspiring public service practitioner.
