Refounding Democratic Public Administration

Modern Paradoxes, Postmodern Challenges

James F. Wolf,

Refounding Democratic Public Administration: Modern Paradoxes, Postmodern Challenges
The American political system is undergoing a serious governmental crisis--our political leaders know only how to campaign, not how to gain consensus on goals or direct a course that is for the good of the nation. Continuing research that began over a decade ago with Gary L. Wamsley′s Refounding Public Administration, this informative new volume continues the argument that public administration is at the center of the governance process and is therefore forced to compensate for the growing inadequacy of our leaders. Refounding Democratic Public Administration offers a revisualization of the relationship between public servants and the citizens they serve, as well as a continuing discourse on how public administration can constructively balance forces of change and stability in order for democracy to evolve and mature.This eye-opening volume will be required reading for students and professionals in public administration, political science, and management/organization studies.
