Justice and Administration is an ambitious effort to grapple with justice as a theoretical component of the practice of public administration, yet with sufficient theoretical power to be meaningful in philosophy, political studies, and sociology.
The time is ripe for such an effort, as the questions that gather under the labels of modernity, the postmodern and critical theory now transcend a single discipline. The work of John Rawls on justice in public life has had a generation of influence on scholarship, and this work seems to have a high degree of likelihood of making meaningful statements on these questions in the field.

Charles F. Abel is Associate Professor of Political Science and Public Administration at Stephen F. Austin State University. He is the coauthor of The Justification of Political Trials and Punishment and Restitution: A Restitutionary Approach to Crime and the Criminal, and Dependency Theory and the Return of High Politics.
Arthur J. Sementelli is Associate Professor of Public Administration at Florida Atlantic University and coauthor of Evolutionary Critical Theory and its Role in Public Affairs.

“A valuable and interesting work. This book addresses a real gap in the literature; few if any works seek to be as comprehensive and substantive. . . . It will stimulate considerable intellectual and practical debate.”
—Danny Lee Balfour, coauthor of Unmasking Administrative Evil, winner of the Brownlow Book Award
