About this title Replete with practical advice for anyone considering a career in federal, state, or local government, Caught between the Dog and the Fireplug, or How to Survive Public Service conveys what life is really like in a public service job.

The book is written as a series of lively, entertaining letters of advice from a sympathetic uncle to a niece or nephew embarking on a government career. Kenneth Ashworth draws on more than forty years of public sector experience to provide advice on the daily challenges that future public servants can expect to face: working with politicians, bureaucracy, and the press; dealing with unpleasant and difficult people; leading supervisors as well as subordinates; and maintaining high ethical standards.

Ashworth relates anecdotes from his jobs in Texas, California, and Washington, D. Be prepared, says Ashworth, to encounter all sorts of unexpected situations, from the hostile to the bizarre, from the intimidating to the outrageous. He shows that in the confrontational world of public policymaking and program implementation, a successful career demands disciplined, informed thought, intellectual and personal growth, and broad reading.

He demonstrates how, despite the inevitable inefficiencies of a democratic society, those working to shape policy in large organizations can nonetheless effect significant change-and even have fun along the way.

The book will interest students and teachers of public administration, public affairs, policy development, leadership, or higher education administration. From the Author: This book, written over a decade ago, has continued every year to sell more copies each year than in the previous year.

My students call it a "keeper," that is, a book not to be resold to the bookstore at the end of the semester, but a book they will carry into their practicing careers as practical advice for them in their future jobs.

Reed, Chancellor, California State University "A wonderful, witty, and literate distillation of a distinguished career in public service.
