Public Sector Reform, Hardback Book

Public Sector Reform Hardback

Edited by Andrew Massey

Part of the SAGE Library of the Public Sector series


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 ReformVolume Two: Management and Post New Public Management: Reform in a time of ChangeVolume Three: Post-Soviet ReformVolume Four: The Developing World and Reform: African, Other Asian and Latin American Pathways
