Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book provides a comprehensive review of public sector reforms and the impact of these reforms on the management of the civil service and the political-administrative interface. The focus is a study of how public sector reforms have impacted upon the executive arm of government with reference to developed and developing countries. South Africa, a country which has undergone an enormous amount of reforms, is used as a case study to highlight how public sector reforms have impacted upon the executive arm of government. The book therefore provides an insight into the functioning of government, the relationship between politicians and senior civil servants and an analysis of contemporary public management in a changing global context. It will prove invaluable for a broad range of people studying or working in the field of governance, public management, public administration, development studies and international relations.
