The authors of this book contend that the civil service system, which was devised to create a uniform process for recruiting high-quality workers to government, is no longer uniform or a system. Nor does it help government find and retain the workers it needs to build a government that works. The current civil service system was designed for a government in which federal agencies directly delivered most public services. But over the last generation, privatization and devolution have increased the number and importance of government's partnerships with private companies, nonprofit organizations, and state and local governments. Government workers today spend much of their time managing these partnerships, not delivering services, and this trend will only accelerate in the future. The authors contend that the current system poorly develops government workers who can effectively manage these partnerships, resulting too often in a gap between promise and performance. This short, lively, and bipartisan volume, authored by the nation's leading experts on government management, describes what the government of the future will look like, what it will need to work well, and how in particular the nation can build the next generation of workers required to lead it.

This anthology will be appropriate for administrative ethics classes at both the masters and doctoral level in public administration, and will be useful for "introduction to the profession" classes often required in the MPA program. NASPAA accreditation guidelines require that "the common curriculum components shall enhance the students' values, knowledge, and skills to act ethically and effectively." Each program is required to address which classes accomplish this and how. The anthology will address the enduring issues in administrative ethics and provide students with the most valuable works on ethics in the discipline of public administration. The ASPA Classics Volumes serve to bridge the practice of public policy and administration with the empirical research base that has accrued and the models for practice that may be deduced from research.

Over the last decade privatization, decentralization and public procurement processes have provided opportunities for unscrupulous civil servants to benefit in central and eastern Europe: the case of Bulgaria, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia are considered. Conflict of interest is the power of public officials to promote their private interest, the private interests of their relatives or the commercial enterprises in which they participate.
