This original work captures the heart, and enlarges the soul, of reform movements within the study of governance and bureaucracy. Author David John Farmer provides constitutive features of a new consciousness for democratic governance that will revolutionize the subject of public administration.

To Kill the King sketches post-traditional consciousness in terms of three rejuvenating concepts--thinking as play, justice as seeking, and practice as art. In a series of critical essays on each of these concepts, the book describes an approach to governance that can yield enormous improvement in the quality of life for each individual. To Kill the King will appeal to any professor (whether in the post-modernist camp or not) who wants to expose students to fresh challenges and new insights.
