This volume examines how those at the top in public life are rewarded. Contributors look at contemporary experience in Europe and the United States and examine: How much public officials are paid in different countries; who decides their reward and how they decide; how reward structures interact with career patterns; and how variations are to be explained.
Rewards at the Top provides a thorough and comprehensive analysis of this important topic and makes fascinating reading.
