9780312217761: Public Management and Administration: An Introduction

This text introduces and assesses the principles and theories underlying recent changes in the scope and management of the public sector. The earlier, traditional model of public administration, dominant for most of the century, is argued to be discredited. Newer public management models are being adopted all over the world and the basis, nature and dimensions of these - as well as their theoretical underpinnings - are considered in detail. Even if some changes work better than others, the author concludes, there will be no returning to the traditional model.

About the Author:

Owen E. Hughes is Associate Director of the Public Sector Management Institute at Monash University in Australia.

Review:

"A strength of the book is the admirable clarity of its arguments. Indeed, this is one of the best written books of its kind that I have come across. Nor does it suffer from the limitations of country-specific studies, treating the NPM as an international phenomenon." --Chris Painter, Teaching Public Administration
