"Exploring Educational Administration", the second book in a planned 3 volume work, begins the task of extending the authors' ideas into more applied domains. It provides some introductory accounts of their theory, some extension of the theory in new directions, particularly in response to the post-modernist challenge, and signals the development of some important applications to educational management issues, notably leadership, policy, decision-making, and organisational design. Since their work has generated a significant amount of controversy they have drawn together, in the last section, three debates on their views from prestigious international journals. The book extends considerably the claims made in "Knowing Educational Administration" by demonstrating how a post-positivist science of administration can deal with traditional and vexed issues in the field. Hence, it will appeal to practitioners, students and researchers alike.
Section Headings: Naturalistic coherentism in educational administration. Naturalistic extensions. Beyond subjectivism and humanism. Critical debates.
