About this title:

Synopsis:

Written by a leading authority in the field, this comprehensive exploration of the political and policy-making roles of public bureaucracies is now available in a fully revised sixth edition, offering extensive, well documented comparative analysis of the effects of politics on bureaucracy.

New to the 6th edition:

  • More international case studies on North America, Western and Eastern European and Asian countries.
  • Discussion of how governments have been developing strategies to enhance co-ordination and coherence across their programmes.
  • Analysis of the use of performance management in public administration.
  • More tables, case studies and internet links.
  • Extensive revision and updating to take into account the wealth of new literature that has emerged in recent years, including a discussion of E-Governance and analysis of ‘new public management’.

Drawing on evidence from a wide variety of political systems, The Politics of Bureaucracy continues to be essential reading for all students of government, policy analysis, and politics and international relations.

Review:

‘An astutely up-dated old favourite whose several editions are sound testimony to the enduring nature of bureaucracy. A treasure chest of facts, insights and reasoning about structures and dynamics so central to the state and government. Excellent for both graduate and undergraduate teaching.’ - Ian Thynne, Governance Program, Charles Darwin University, Australia

‘This sixth edition of this popular textbook provides the readers with a comprehensive and updated discussion of challenges and recent developments in the field of public bureaucracy. Contemporary public administration is placed in its political and intellectual context and analyzed in a well-informed and skilful manner.’ - Profesor Per Lægreid, University of Bergen
