This title presents a comprehensive overview of the issues in modern bureacracies, combined with a comparative analysis of the civil service systems and administrative traditions of five Anglo-American nations: Australia, Canada, great Britain, New Zealand and the United States. In each chapter, expert contributors undertake a systematic analysis of each country's civil service from three broad perspectives: external relations, internal constituent features and patterns of change. By employing a comparative framework in conjunction with empirical research, they are able to emphasise the specific nature, characteristics and development of each service system. They also highlight the historical developments and reforms associated with the Anglo-American model, which are often highly distinctive compared with the other OECD nations. The concludes with a systematic comparison of each civil service system, attempting to find parallels and variations between them.
