Since independence in 1980, Zimbabwe's radical socialist government has
struggled to steer the nation into development and prosperity. The engine for
that drive has been public administration - but one inherited from a
distinctly different, and antagonistic, colonial past. How can the interests
of the « keepers of the past » ever coincide with those of the « engineers of
change? » This book lifts the lid on the contradictions, constraints and
difficulties in pursuing policies for change within a rusting and out-of-date
administration system. Conflicts and competition between politicians and civil
servants easily erode well-intentioned policies. Production of vital resources
are regulated by the state. Globalisation and technological change cannot be
addressed let alone manipulated without a responsive public sector. How the
private sector meshes with state industry is dependent on the skills of public
administration. Several writers also look into public administration itself -
staff morale, gender policy, pay and conditions. Drawing on the specifically
Zimbabwean experience of researchers, academics, policy makers and
administrators, the book explores several critical issues about the historical
and current development of public administration as an instrument of the
state.
