About this Item

This reader brings together significant articles on the theory and practice of public administration. It outlines the historical proceses associated with the growth of public administration as a discipline and goes on to reflect on contemporary administrative perspectives and experiences. A new preface takes stock of important developments in the field. While discussing the major theoretical premises of the discipline and their efficacy in the practical sphere of governance, as also the prevalent structures of administration, these include bureaucratic operations and practices new theoretical advances since Max Weber Rigg's administrative ecology and the Marxist concept of bureaucracy. The book also focuses on changes brought about by privatization in governance, and discusses these changes in the context of the markedly neo-liberal agenda of the modern state. This reader--prescribed for PG courses in Public Administation--will be essential for scholars, teachers, and research ers of public administration as also to postgraduate students in political science, law, and administrative history. It will also be an ideal reference for administrators, policy-makers, and bureaucrats. Printed Pages: 458. Size: 14 x 22 Cm. Bookseller Inventory # 013553
