Government Is Us

Government Is Us
Strategies for an Anti-Government Era

March 1998 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
While scepticism about government is an enduring feature of North American political culture, today's climate of anti-government sentiment has grown aggressive and even violent. This volume, made up of a community of prominent voices in public administration theory and practice, examines the current anti-government climate and its effect on the working lives of administrators and their relationships with citizens. It documents the sources of citizen discontent with government; explores its effects upon career civil servants' ability to do their work; and attempts to understand the implications for public administration practice in an anti-government area.
