The Next Public Administration: Debates and Dilemmas

B. Guy Peters and Jon Pierre



181 pages




This text offers an advanced introduction to public administration as a practice and research field. Each chapter deals with a dichotomy or dilemma in the field to expose key questions in governing: between public administration and public management, bureaucrats and service providers, neutrality and responsiveness to political pressures, fragmentation and strategy, simplicity and complexity in programs and implementation, rationality and routine in making decisions, autonomy and integration with the rest of society, rationality and incrementalism in funding public organizations, and authority and democracy in public institutions delivering policy and programs or prioritizing political and societal responsiveness.
