A political pendulum?
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Public services play an essential role in society, and yet their image is often poor, fed by television programmes such as 'Yes Minister'. Common perceptions include that they have little real merit, do not work hard, are too powerful, are impossible to dismiss, and could benefit from some private sector experience. This study considers how the maligned career service model of public sector employment has evolved. It outlines the traditional model, with its tenets of merit, tenure, standardised conditions and political neutrality, administered by an independent personnel agency. It explores the implementation of the model in the Queensland public service from 1859 to 2000. It concludes that the career model was necessary to overcome problems of politicisation, corruption, insecurity and inefficiency that arose from the previous patronage model. By the late 20th century, poor implementation of the model had led to growing dissatisfaction. Rather than address this poor implementation, the model itself was reformed and weakened. The problems of politicisation and insecurity that existed prior to the career service model are now re-emerging.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan & The American Family
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Throughout his industrious career, which spanned subcabinet service under four president as well as four senatorial terms, Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003) consistently found himself preoccupied with notions of American family life. He regarded traditional family arrangements as essential to the preservation of America's moral backbone. Ironically, however, he remained a "liberal", wrapped in the cloth of the New Deal and decidedly deaf to the social upheavals of the 1970s, which overthrew the familial traditionalism of his youth, and came to define mainstream "liberalism" by the late 1970s. This thesis will track Moynihan s ruminations and beliefs as they touched on the family, spanning his career from the 1960s until his retirement in 2000. His academic writings, personal correspondences, speeches and policy positions will all be examined. It will be contended that Moynihan's views regarding the family were highly and consistently conservative throughout his career, and that this conservatism reflected Catholic social thought, as well as a deeply held conviction that culture was unavoidably an organic and inherited process by necessity coming from the family and not the stat
