Bureaucracy in the Modern State: An Introduction to Comparative Public Administration
E. Elgar, 1995 - Political Science - 224 pages
Public administration faces challenges in the 1990s to become more efficient, better geared to the demands and opinions of citizens, more open to contacts with transnational bureaucracies, and more responsive to the ideals of elected policy makers. This book offers a comparative analysis of how these challenges affect public administration in France, the United States, Germany, Japan, Britain, Sweden and the developing countries of the Third World.
