Overview

Public Sector Reform is endemic to public administrations and governmental structures globally. It is driven by a variety of dynamics and these vary according to their specific context: geographical, cultural, social, political, economic and temporal. This four-volume set brings together elements of the classical and modern work in this diverse field in a comprehensive and accessible way; providing an indispensable resource for both academics and practitioners from a social science and business perspective. Through a 4-volume structure, which takes in historical and modern day perspectives whilst maintaining a strong global focus on the subject, the set demonstrates that reform is a constant process and that it has been taking place for a long time; that which we often consider a 'golden age' in terms of Weberian bureaucracies or welfare state hierarchies, was itself a reform that belonged to a specific time and set of places. Volume One: The Historical Perspective of Reform Volume Two: Management and Post New Public Management: Reform in a time of Change Volume Three: Post-Soviet Reform Volume Four: The Developing World and Reform: African, Other Asian and Latin American Pathways
