Five current trends are woven throughout appropriate chapters: globalization; the impact of new information technology; the movement of decisions to lower levels of government (devolution) and down through government hierarchies (empowerment); the delivery of government services by private sector organizations; and the opportunities and challenges of diversity. For those interested in public administration.
