520    "Informed by a "5 R" framework (reconceptualizing purpose,
       redefining rationality, recapitalizing human assets, 
       reengaging resources, and revitalizing democratic 
       constitutionalism), this book bridges the gap between 
       theory and practice. In this collection of articles 
       revised for book format, the Durants expertly draw out 
       themes, issues, problems, and prospects in their preface 
       and section introductions. Bulleted lessons and practical 
       take-aways are also added for the busy practitioner and 
       researcher. This book is a 'one stop shop' for cross-
       disciplinary, cross-sectoral, and cross-professional 
       exchanges on contemporary challenges, choices, and 
       opportunities facing public administrators today"--

520    "Preface Theory to Practice Advancing the "science, 
       processes, and art of public administration" has long been
       a central animating purpose of the American Society for 
       Public Administration (ASPA). Such a mission today 
       involves practitioners and scholars providing answers to 
       what is arguably the central animating question facing 
       societies worldwide: how, when, and with what implications
       for the values treasured in a democratic republic can we 
       best harness for public purposes the dynamism of markets, 
       the passion and commitment of nonprofit and 
       nongovernmental organizations, and the public interest-
       oriented expertise of the career public service at all 
       levels of government. But dialogue between practitioners 
       and academics has increasingly become the exception rather
       than the rule in contemporary public administration 
       circles. With this set of challenges in mind, the then-new
       PAR editor Richard Stillman and managing editor Jos 
       Raadschelders generously asked me to develop a feature for
       the journal that would be tailored to the information 
       needs of practitioners while simultaneously affording 
       scholars state-of-the-art summaries of the status of 
       current research. As such, my interrelated aims as editor 
       of Theory to Practice (T2P) were fourfold: ?? Afford 
       opportunities for academics, practitioners, and 
       pracademics to inform each other's work in the hope of 
       advancing both practice and theory building in public 
       administration ?? Facilitate cross-disciplinary, cross-
       sectoral (public, private, and nonprofit), and cross-
       professional exchanges that break down contemporary 
       tendencies toward fragmentation and "stovepiping" of 
       knowledge applicable to both practice and theory ??"--
