'The new edition of this volume is a welcome update to an important contribution to the literature on comparative public administration. It is replete with the erudite analysis and evaluation delivered by leading scholars from a richly blended global perspective.' Andrew Massey, Professor of Politics, University of Exeter, UK 'This second and wholly revised edition of the volume presents an excellent perspective of the changing nature and environment of civil service systems. The editors have brought together leading experts on national administrations and have produced a first-rate comparative volume of civil service systems. It will be invaluable to all students of public administration and to practitioners.' Ezra Suleiman, IBM Professor of International Studies, Princeton University, USA 'This book brings a convincing kaleidoscopic view of Civil Service Systems (CSS). Based on the most updated empirical research, the editors take a real global perspective with solid comparisons and an evolutionary vision on CSS. Reference to challenges such as governance, performance, and accountability show how CSS moves from being part of a problem to being part of a solution. For all these reasons, this book will become a classic.' Geert Bouckaert, President of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences, Brussels, Belgium
