9780817307844: The Language of Public Administration: Bureaucracy, Modernity, and Postmodernity

Coping with the practical problems of bureaucracy is hampered by the limited self-conception and the constricted mindsets of mainstream public administration thinking. Modernist public administration theory, although valuable and capable of producing ever more remarkable results, is limiting as an explanatory and catalytic force in resolving fundamental problems about the nature, size, scope, and functioning of public bureaucracy and in transforming public bureaucracy into a more positive force.

This original study specifies a reflexive language paradigm for public administration thinking and shows how a postmodern perspective permits a revolution in the character of thinking about public bureaucracy. The author considers imagination, deconstruction, deterritorialization, and alterity. Farmer's work emphasizes the need for an expansion in the character and scope of public administration's disciplinary concerns and shows clearly how the study and practice of public administration can be reinvigorated.

About the Author:

David John Farmer is Professor of Political Science and Public Administration at Virginia Commonwealth University.

 

Review:

"This book will help to expand not only the vocabularies but also the disciplinary concerns of the present generation of public administrationists. This study is an encouraging example of the kind of intellectual discourse that is so much needed at present."—William H. Stewart, The University of Alabama

"An excellent example of the extent to which modern and postmodern public administrationists are considerably more philosophical than much of the rest of the social sciences."—H. George Frederickson, The University of Kansas
