Kevin Rudd : twice prime minister by Patrick Moray Weller( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a very different Kevin Rudd two returned to office in 2013. Kevin 07 was a fresh face and a new image, so different from past leaders, and who held so much potential. By 2013 Rudd retained some of his popularity, but none of his novelty. His second term was to be short, brutal and nasty. This book has the advantage of interviews in 2008 and 2009 with ministers who were then supporters but who became diehard enemies. This biography is a revealing account of the man who became prime minister - twice
Comparing Westminster by R. A. W Rhodes( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

POLITICAL SCIENCE & THEORY. Comparing Westminster explores how the governmental elites in Australia, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa understand their Westminster system. It examines in detail four interrelated features of Westminster systems. Firstly, the increasing centralisation in collective, responsible cabinet government. Second, the constitutional convention of ministerial and collective responsibility. Third, the role of a professional, non-partisan public service. And finally, parliament's relationship to the executive. The authors explain the changes that have occured in the Westminster model by analysing four traditions: royal prerogative, responsible government, constitutional bureaucracy, and representative government. They suggest that each tradition has a recurring dilemma, between centralisation and decentralisation, party government and ministerial responsibility, professionalisation and politicisation, and finally elitism and participation

The working world of international organizations : authority, capacity, legitimacy by Yi-Chong Xu( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Working World of International Organizations' examines three working groups in the higher echelons of IOs - state representatives, as proxy of states, serving in the Executive Boards or General Councils, chief officers of IOs, and the staff of the permanent secretariat. The book demonstrates that none of them are unified; in each there are contested ideas about strategy and appropriate projects, and analyses their interactions to explain who is able to shape or influence decisions. Six representative IOs are studied to identify the relevant critical determinants that shape the behaviour of players. The volume explores how these players have an impact over three dilemmas that are common to all IOs: priority and agenda setting, financing, and the centralization or decentralization of operations

The governance of world trade : international civil servants and the GATT/WTO by Yi-Chong Xu( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Governance of World Trade focuses on the roles, influence and impacts of the so-called 'GATT operatives' or WTO practitioners. It is widely assumed that they have little influence on decisions and policies made, but, according to the authors, the GATT/WTO Secretariat has played an active role in promoting multilateral cooperation." "This study of the internal operation of the GATT/WTO argues that the invisible yet indispensable international civil servants are the permanent machinery within the institution. They have, the authors ascertain, an important coordinating function and act according to a specific scale of values that transcend those of individual states, providing the continuity and the cement, the credibility and the connection among self-interest-driven states. The book concludes that as one of the most 'democratic' international organizations, operating on the principle of consensus, the WTO needs a creative Secretariat as a necessary condition for multilateral cooperation to work." "Using case studies to analyse the workings of Secretariat officials in trade negotiations, and the influence and role of international civil servants, this book will be a fascinating read for a wide ranging audience including: political scientists and economists, international civil servants, think tanks, NGOs, and Government agencies."--BOOK JACKET

The changing world of top officials : mandarins or valets?( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the roles and workings of the heads of government departments in six nations: departmental secretaries in Australia, departmentschefs in Denmark, directeurs d'administration in France, secretaris-generaal in the Netherlands, chief executives in New Zealand, and permanent secretaries in the UK. It also seeks to explore their 'infinite variety' by showing how inherited government traditions shape the response to reform. It examines how such reforms as privatization and contracting out have affected who does these jobs and how they do them. It asks whether the demands of the new public management have made departmental heads more accountable, more public and more vulnerable. For each of the six countries the authors give details of departmental secretaries' backgrounds, their career paths, their conditions of employment, their impacts, and their changing positions. Central to each chapter are short biographies or portraits of top officials with extensive quotations from interviews in which they talk about how they see their worlds and how, for instance, they now focus more on managing their departments and less on policy-making. The experience of senior public servants is brought vividly to life. This book is the first comprehensive, comparative portrait of top government officials, and is an important resource for students and scholars of politics, public policy and public management, and makes fascinating reading for all senior civil servants themselves."--Cover
