Bureaucratic Power, Democracy and Administrative Democracy (Hardback)Im Song-Han (author)
- We can order this
This title was first published in 2001. This account of how political democracy has increasingly lost its significance considers the influence of the rise of bureaucratic power. It examines what happens when powerful policy-making positions are no longer dominated by politicians with ideological agenda, but have increasingly become the domain of bureaucrats with no such designs. Through theoretical and empirical debate, the author argues that rather than attempting to preserve and adhere to the declining institutional democracy, a new democracy is often established within the bureaucratic organizations themselves. The book also includes the viewpoint that bureaucrats are superior elite and they have ideology-free propensity, discusses the effort to find a new democracy in administrative or bureaucratic organizations, and discusses the attempt to find a common point through comparing advanced democratic nations, developing nations and the post or present communist nations centring around bureaucrats.
