Public Administration: Was There a Future?
Present Day Public Administration: Third Party Government and Expanded Presidential Power
Concluding Thought: Strengthening Academic Public Administration and Policy Studies
Based on my 50-year academic career, I reflect on the past half-century of intellectual developments in the fields of public administration and public policy. Drawing on research, decades of teaching outstanding doctoral students, personal interactions with key contributors, and involvement in some major events and movements, I seek to provide an overview of our post World War II progression and offer some thoughts on possible future concerns. Public administration topics covered include the case studies movement following the demise of the public administration Orthodoxy in the 1940s, the rise and impact of heterodoxy, the New Public Administration, the fleeting successive preoccupations with PPBS, MBO, ZBB, and TQM, and the designs and impacts of the 1978 federal civil service reform and Clinton-Gore reinventing government efforts. With respect to public policy, I review dual origins of contemporary policy studies and policy analysis: 1) the emergence of policy studies in the late-1960s as a distinctive field separate from political science and its early focus on implementation forming a lasting, if not seamless relationship with public administration; and 2) the advent of economics based policy analysis in the early- mid-1960s in connection with international economic development programs and U.S. defense policy. My analysis concludes with a brief consideration of the impact of contemporary academic performance incentives on the growth of knowledge in both public administration and public policy.
