While public administration practice and education in general has become considerably professionalized in the last decade, existing knowledge on public administration in Southeast Asia is fragmented at best, and often devoid of a useful reference. While journal articles and government reports provide decentralized information, Public Administration in Southeast Asia: Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Macao takes a comprehensive and comparative look at the major components of administration systems. The selection of countries and regions included reflects the diversity of Southeast Asia.
Organized by Country
The handbook fills a critical need by bringing together leading scholars who provide an insider perspective and viewpoint on essential and advanced issues. Divided into five sections, each dedicated to a particular country, the text outlines topics relevant to modern public administration, including:
Focusing on recent developments in public administration in these countries which are among the fastest growing economies in the world, the book explores their practices and innovative approaches in public administration. For many years people have been fascinated by the cultures, peoples, and governments of Southeast Asia, and now they have a book that discusses the apparatus of government in Southeast Asia – their agencies, contexts, processes, and values.

National Chengchi University, Taipei, TaiwanReview:
"... the volume meets and exceeds its primary objective to provide comprehensive insider perspective on public administration systems and processes of these countries and administrative regions. Combined, the in-depth and systematic insider perspective carefully checked by the meticulous review process, the diversity of selected countries, and the existence of parallel volume covering the same set of elements on each country, provide excellent ground for further advancing comparative analysis and moving theory and practice forward."
