A multidisciplinary analysis of the role of values and virtue in public administration, this book calls for a rediscovery of virtue. It explores ways of enabling the public sector to balance the values that are presently dominant with classic values such as accountability, representation, equality, neutrality, transparency and the public interest.
'Values and Virtues in Public Administration is a timely volume that brings together contributions from world-class scholars who remind us that values are the core of public administration. Professors Pan Suk Kim, Michiel De Vries and their collaborators offer the foundations for a post-New Public Management era in which fundamental public service values will be reasserted by both public officials and citizens.' - James L. Perry, Distinguished Professor and Chancellor's Professor of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, Bloomington, USA
'This excellent volume addresses the enduring problem of why 'values and virtues in public administration are not easily accomplished' although 'everything public administration does is value-bound' and 'virtuous behavior' is often 'crucial.' Seeking answers from theory and practice across the globe and time, the editors and contributors have produced an outstanding book of major importance to all who seek a deeper understanding of public administration that goes well beyond the conventional putative pillars of efficiency, economy, and effectiveness. This book is a must read for faculty and graduate students in public administration and public management.' - David H. Rosenbloom, Distinguished Professor of Public Administration, American University, Washington, DC, USA.
