The Handbook of Canadian Public AdministrationBook - 2002
The Handbook of Canadian Public Administration reflects on the historical approaches to the study and practice of public administration, while considering some of the new 'hot issues' in the field, such as: new public management; alternative service delivery; information and communicationstechnology; voluntary sector and the role of municipal governments. It also looks at specific policy areas such health care, regulation of biotechnology, and Aboriginal self-government.Every chapter is written by an expert in the field and follows a format that is consistent throughout the book. Each selection looks first at the history of the topic in question, then at its current state, and ends by examining possible future directions. The volume has both individual chapterintroductions and a general introduction providing the context, structure, and aims of the work as a whole.
