Thinking Government : Public Administration and Politics in Canada (Paperback) (David Johnson)
About this item
Thinking Government introduces readers to the power relations between elected politicians and unelected public servants, while also covering important topics such as the institutions of the federal government, financial and human resources management, and accountability and responsibility. Johnson explores the ways in which the ideological framework of this country shapes what Canadians, their political parties, and their governments think about policy actions and the responsibilities of public servants.
The fourth edition is revised and updated throughout, including new research, references and examples. It also incorporates the results of the 2015 federal election. To aid readers new to public administration in Canada, the book includes learning objectives for each chapter, theme boxes, review questions, and a glossary.
