Offering strategies for a new generation of administrative systems, this book explores the impact of recent managerial reforms and shifting societal values on the stability, legitimacy, and progress of democratic governments. The chapters highlight innovations in consumer communication management and marketing, evolving methods of policy planning, formation, and implementation, and the role of high-information/high-technology in public agencies. Providing insight into the changing environment present in most governing structures, the book covers ethical dilemmas in public service, the definition of work for public sector employees, and population behavior during mass disasters.
