A pronouncement that the decades, of the 1980s and 1990s are to be eras of scarcity for government is a statement taken at face value today. Moreover, few will argue that coping with budgeting and finance in the public sector requires considerable management and decision-making skills.

This Handbook provides in-depth descriptions and analysis of the major areas in budgeting and financial management. As such, it is designed as the major desk reference which any public administration practitioner or academician may need. Thus, while the reader will find essays describing methods and procedures, he or she will also discover philosophical approaches and arguments.

Indeed, the Handbook on Public Budgeting and Financial Management is the kind of “encyclopedic” approach required for this fast-changing field. The editors welcome comments and suggestions from readers so that any future works will have the benefit or reader’s response.
