MPA 718: Revisiting Public Bureaucracy
Organizations, whether they be public bureaucracies or private firms, are the fundamental building blocks for public administration and, indeed, of much of contemporary industry and post-industrial society. To understand how public administration as a discipline has evolved is to understand how the study of public organizations has evolved. This is particularly the case at a time when there are major efforts to “reinvent” or “re-engineer” government.
