Description - The Politicization of the Civil Service in Comparative Perspective by B. Guy Peters
One of the persistent claims made about the public sector over the past several decades has been that the public service has become more politicized. Addressing this important area of debate within public administration, this book discusses conceptions and measurements of politicization, as well as some of its causes and consequences. Using a comparative framework, the authors collected here confront the issue of politicisation, identifying the nature and extent of political involvement and assessing the real impact of any changes on the legitimacy and effectiveness of the political system. The book addresses issues such as: Compensation Appointments made from outside the civil service system Anonymity Partisanship Systems to handle appointees of prior administrations This invaluable study contains case studies of the US, Canada, Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Britain, New Zealand, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain and Greece. It will appeal to all those interested in public administration and the civil service in particular.
