About the Book

The economic, political, and cultural forces of globalization affect every citizen of the world--and the institutions that govern them. Against a backdrop of increasing resistance to these forces, especially in the developing world, this volume establishes a new theoretical and practical framework for analyzing the effects of globalization on nation-states, local governments, nongovernmental and international organizations, and other administrative systems. Invoking a term attributed to Darius the Great over 2,500 years ago--sound governance--editors Ali Farazmand and Rosalyn Carter set the stage for a rich and multidimensional collection of essays on emerging issues in public administration around the world.

Topics include: The impact and influence of the United Nations; Ethics and accountability in government; Applying the total quality management model to public sector institutions; Judicial and legislative reforms; Business-government partnerships and improvements in the delivery of public services. The result is a comprehensive study of innovations in public administration that will serve as an essential resource for students, researchers, policymakers, and practitioners alike.

About the Author:

ALI FARAZMAND is Director of the School of Public Administration at Florida Atlantic University, where he also teaches graduate and Ph.D. courses.
