Democracy and the Public Service

It features a new chapter on the impact of management and theories of management upon public personnel administration, including discussion of the Model Public Personnel Law of 1940, the Watergate scandals and President Carter's personnel reforms of 1978.

This is one of the classic histories of public administration. Its a bit dated now (1982), but still a revealing and interesting history. Especially suited for grad students in political science, history or public administration
