The Public Administrator: Contenders, Contentions, and Tensions

 
9781633912601: The Public Administrator: Contenders, Contentions, and Tensions

This book is the outcome of a 30-year intellectual odyssey. It focuses on the behavioral connotations of public sector reform. Its setting is the multi-pronged criticisms that have been made in recent decades of traditional hierarchical bureaucrats. Their critics have diverse reform agendas, but ultimately, they expect bureaucrats to change the way they think and behave. Central to reform is, then, the battle between the contending perspectives on the quintessence of the role-model public administrator—the exemplary appointed government official. Understanding the human dimension of public sector reform is, thus, at the heart of this book. Professor John Dixon is Professor of Public Administration at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey. He is the Emeritus Professor of Public Policy and Management at the University of Plymouth in the United Kingdom. He is a fellow of the British Academy of the Social Sciences, nominated by the British Social Policy Association, and an honorary life member of the American Phi Beta Delta Honor Society for International Scholars, nominated by the American Political Science Association and the Policy Studies Organization.
