Local government management : the rhetoric and reality of change

Linda Keen and Richard Scase

Local government in Britain is undergoing fundamental transformation. This book explores the impact of these changes upon the attitudes, behaviour and job satisfaction of the managers most affected by them. On the basis of a detailed review of recent research findings and theoretical debates, it outlines the major changes affecting local government organizations and the duties and responsibilities of those working within them. This provides the context for a detailed empirical case study which explores the extent to which a rhetoric of 'new managerialism' is supported by a reality of change.
