Paradoxes of Human Nature and Public Management Reform

Paradoxes of Human Nature and Public Management Reform – Talbot 2005

This is a book chapter based on a key note speech I gave at the launch conference of the Network of Asia-Pacific Schools and Institutes of Public Administration and Governance (NAPSIPAG) in Kuala Lumpur in December 2004.

It tries to draw a link between evolved human social nature and the contradictory tides of public management reform

It was published in this book which is sadly no longer available (although I have a PDF of the entire book if anyone wants it).

The model of human social instincts I use here, which was also used in my book “The Paradoxical Primate“, has since changed as I explain elsewhere on this blog .
