A concise book on public administration and public policy for Ghana is lacking in the literature, and hence, the the attempt to write this seminal book to fill the gap. The book defines public administration and ties it to the Constitution and the executive branch. It also emphasizes the history and reforms of the civil service. It devotes time to the judiciary and its role; it, furthermore, focuses some time on the policy process and the legislature. Finally, an attempt is made to tie all the "pieces" together. This book is written for those interested in public administration and public policy in Ghana in particular and all others who are interested in the field of public administration and public policy in general. The principles and issues expressed in the book can be applied to many areas of public administration and public policy and are not restrictive. The book is intentionally written in an easy-to-understand format and language. The intention is to give a very broad and introductory overview of the workings of public administration and public policy, particularly using as an example a young and upcoming country on the move.
