The Art of the State: Culture, Rhetoric, and Public Management

Portada
Oxford University Press, 2000 - 261 páginas
"Why does public management - the art of the state - so often go wrong, producing failure and fiasco instead of public service? What are the different ways in which control or regulation can be applied to government? Why do we find contradictory receipes for the improvement of public services? Are the forces of modernity set to produce worldwide convergence in ways of organizing government? This important new study aims to explore such questions, central to current debates over public management" -- Back cover.
