About this title

Synopsis:

Radical reforms of the civil service during the 1980s and 90s have broken up the old unified hierarchical structures. In their place are peripheral agencies concerned with policy implementation and a central core comcerned with policy-making. The radical reforms are described and assessed in terms of the public choice and public management theories which underpin them. Bureau-maximizing and bureau-shaping models are used to predict the directions we should expect the reforms to take and their likely success. The key central chapter of the book examines the equivocal use of the term "efficiency" used to justify the managerial changes. This is the first textbook which critically examines theories of bureaucracy together with an introductory and descriptive account of the civil service today.

About the Author:

Keith Dowding is a Lecturer in public choices and public policy at the London School of Economics.

Store Description

There is a stock of 80,000+ in the small town of Bere Alston, which is in an "area of oustanding natural beauty". It is open five days a week (closed Wednesday and Sunday) 10am to 4.30pm. This is a mining area and I am interested in buying mining books and academic books in large quantities.
