Abstract: The field of public administration couldn’t be explained without a rational and objective approach. In this meaning, the book Politicile Publice, Raţionalitate şi decizie în spaţiul administrativ, written by Dorina Ţicu, resumes the theoretical framework for the correlation between public policy and public administration. The book is structured in three parts (chapters) in which the author expresses the main concepts and its proper theory about the rationality in public policies. At the conceptual level we can identify several normative approaches in addition with public decision and bureaucrat’s rationality. The decisional process is seen as the main behavioral value for political actors, individuals, social groups or institutional sphere. The author emphasizes the idea that the rational choice could be a kind of modus vivendi for different social actors. Starting with these premises the decisional process is the engine of the social action. Every social actor sets its social actions in accord with rational purposes or rational motivation.
