This volume includes perspectives on public service selected from six decades of major public administration journals. Recurring themes include: motivations to enter the public service, positive and negative images of public servants and of government, conflicts between loyalty to the organization and loyalty to the public, morale, burnout, and turnover. The volume also includes cross-national analyses of the public service in other systems, proposals for rethinking public service systems, and questions as to the future of the public service. It recaptures a long, continuing debate as to the health of the public service, and in so doing suggests agendas for university research and administrative action.
Marc Holzer, Ph.D. (University of Michigan) is executive director of the National Center for Public Productivity, as well as a Professor of Public Administration and Director of the Ph.D. Program in Public Administration at Rutgers University Campus at Newark.
