This volume represents an attempt to update the study of public administration in Latin America. Much of the research that has been done on public administration in this region has been extremely formal and legalistic, but this volume will use contemporary theories and methods to analyse public administration in Latin America.The Handbook is separated into two major parts. The first will contain chapters about administration in individual countries. In so far as possible these chapters will cover a common set of topics for each country so that there will be direct comparability. The coverage is not universal but does attempt to cover the principal systems in the region, as well as to provide representative examples of other types of administrative and political systems.The second part of the Handbook will contain chapters addressing important issues in public administration in a comparative manner. These chapters will address significant issues in the region such as the management of personnel, the control of corruption and the improvement of accountability.
