an international analysis of the role of the political adviser
edited by Chris Eichbaum, Richard Shaw

Published 2010 by Edward Elgar Pub. in Cheltenham, UK, Northampton, MA .
Written in English.

About the Book

"This comparative collection of original contributions examines the role of political staff in executive government and the consequences for policy-making and governance." "The leading contributors reveal that good governance is about governments getting the advice that they need to hear as well as the advice that they want to hear. They highlight the importance of ensuring that the advice is appropriately responsive to the policy priorities of the government of the day. In countries such as the United States, and in some European democracies, political appointments to senior administrative positions are not a new development. However, in recent years a third element - the political adviser - has also become a feature of policy-making and political management in Westminster-styled systems. This authoritative work seeks to illuminate the drivers behind the advent of political staff in executive government, and the consequences for policy-making and governance. This unique book includes case studies from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States." "Academics and postgraduates researching in public administration and management as well as political science will find this book invaluable. Policymakers in agencies responsible for public service leadership will also find much to interest them in this important book."--BOOK JACKET.
