Comparing Public Sector Reform in Britain and Germany: Key Traditions and Trends of Modernisation (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This title was first published in 2000: This text collects a set of specially commissioned chapters by British and German political scientists as well as experts in public administration and management, designed to present and grapple with the range of the subject in an accessible but sophisticated form. In doing so, the volume seeks to fill the gap perceived to have opened up between the conventional comparative government literature and the new public management literature. While the first part of the book explores the historical, political and cultural context of public sector reform, the second part deals more specifically with institutional developments and recent reform trends in the fields of social policy and social service delivery. The volume analyzes the degree of "convergence" or "divergence" between the two countries with regard to public sector change.
