Providing important insights into the origins of policy ideas, the qualities and capabilities of leaders, the nature and challenges of large organizational changes, and the complexity of efforts to evaluate the outcomes of reform, the contributors consider aspects of public administration reform in countries such as Canada, Thailand, Mexico, and China as well as the ways in which changes have been shaped by global forces, national values, traditions, and culture. An invaluable work for understanding the new challenges faced by the governments around the world, Comparative Administration Change and Reform offers a clear analysis of both the successes and failures of reform and should be read by anyone interested in politics, administration, and public sector reform.
