A comparative, interdisciplinary examination of the mechanismsbehind public administration

Global Dimensions of Public Administration and Governanceis a comprehensive, comparative text on the structure and functionof governments around the world. Written by two of the field'sleading public administration scholars, this book provides aninterdisciplinary perspective and a global, historical, andtheoretical examination of the management and governance of themodern state. Readers learn how territory, bureaucracy, andpolitical systems influence policy and reform in over thirtycountries, and how these mechanisms affect the everyday lives ofcitizens. This comparative approach features rich examples of howpolicy is shaped by culture, and how modern policy principles arefiltered to fit a country's needs and expectations. Chaptersconclude with comparative analyses that help readersbetter-understand the role and position of government in thecontemporary world, both in democratic societies andless-than-democratic environments.

Governance doesn't happen in a vacuum. Those responsible forpolicy, regulation, and reform take cues from history, currentevents, and visions for the future to inform thinking on mattersthat can potentially affect a large number of everyday lives. Thisbook illustrates the thought process, providing the necessaryinsight these important decisions require.

  • Understand the relationship between structure and function ofgovernment
  • Learn how policy is culture-dependent
  • Examine the political and societal contexts of reform
  • Discover the myriad forms of modern bureaucracy

The various social sciences provide valuable information andperspectives for those involved in public administration. Thoseperspectives converge here to form a thorough, well-rounded,examination of the success and failure possible, and the mechanismsthrough which they take place. Global Dimensions of PublicAdministration and Governance provides a detailed, wide-ranginglook at how modern governments operate, how they got this far, andwhere they're headed for the future.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for
GLOBAL DIMENSIONS of PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION AND GOVERNANCE

"This book offers an effective GPS for our complex maps of public administration and governance. Raadschelders and Vigoda-Gadot show us where and why we are now (roots, culture, traditional activities), where we could go (modern government, state making, and nation building), and how to do so (development of governance, visions for practice). With this book, we are not on a 'lonely planet' but in the company of excellent guides in a complex world of different countries, organizations, and policies."
—Geert Bouckaert, Professor, KU Leuven; President, International Institute of Administrative Sciences

"Professors Raadschelders and Vigoda-Gadot, leading scholars with particularly well-developed international perspectives, provide a genuinely valuable resource for understanding the globalization that increasingly infuses the theory and practice of public administration and public policy. Moving across 33 nations, they analyze the similar challenges that nations face in advancing public policies, but also the differences in the ways they address those challenges."
—Hal G. Rainey, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor, School of Public and International Affairs, The University of Georgia

"This is a necessary policy and administration tour for public administrators who are dedicated to delivering public services as promised in the founding documents of hundreds of nation states and millions of their component units of government. Raadschelders and Vigoda-Gadot have written a path-breaking volume that is a vital guide for all public sector stakeholders in a globalized society. The authors distill theory and clarify practice in an effective style that makes the book all the more valuable. If it were required reading across the curriculum, if all practitioners of governance kept it at the ready, then the efficacy and performance of public organizations would help rebuild trust in our most basic institutions."
—Dean Marc Holzer, PhD, Board of Governors Distinguished Professor of Public Affairs and Administration, Rutgers University-Newark

"This is the first compendium about comparative politics, administration, and policy truly written for a globalized world. The emphasis is on seeking out both commonalities in institutional structures that appear repeatedly and also on differences emerging from variations in history and culture. Material does not just come from the 'usual suspect' countries, but includes discussions from Laos, Romania, and Columbia, as well as considerable material on China. This book will be read with profit by a wide audience."
—Steve Kelman, Weatherhead Professor of Public Management, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
