Guerrillas in government are all around us. They can be as high profile as &BAD:ldquo;Deep Throat,&BAD:rdquo; or as low profile as the bureaucrat who belligerently slows the processing of an application for a driver&BAD:rsquo;s license. Their dissent stems from dissatisfaction with the actions of public organizations they work for, but they strategically choose not to go public with their concerns. Instead, they work against the wishes&BAD:mdash;either implicitly or explicitly communicated&BAD:mdash;of their superiors and run the spectrum from anti-establishment liberals to fundamentalist conservatives, from constructive contributors to deviant destroyers. Typically guerrilla government is undetected as it is woven into the fabric of the everyday, often mundane, world of bureaucracy.Rosemary O&BAD:rsquo;Leary shows that the majority of guerrilla government cases are the manifestation of inevitable tensions between bureaucracy and democracy, which yield immense ethical and organizational challenges that all public managers must learn to navigate. To illustrate these tensions and challenges, O&BAD:rsquo;Leary presents three in-depth case studies and 21 mini case studies that showcase the range of guerrillas from an official at a regional EPA office to a doctor at a medical school to the director of planning in a county office. O&BAD:rsquo;Leary&BAD:rsquo;s fresh analysis, combined with great story-telling, underscores the importance of dissent and presents strategies for ways public servants can decide ethically to engage in guerrilla activity, while offering ways public managers can learn to tap into the potentially insightful, creative ideas and energy of dissenters in order to make constructive changes in the system.

From “constructive contributors” to “deviant destroyers,” government guerrillas work clandestinely against the wishes of their superiors. These many public servants are dissatisfied with the actions of the organizations for which they work, but often choose not to go public with their concerns. In The Ethics of Dissent: Managing Guerrilla Government, Second Edition, Rosemary O’Leary shows that the majority of guerrilla government cases are the manifestation of inevitable tensions between bureaucracy and democracy, which yield immense ethical and organizational challenges that all public managers must learn to navigate. Alongside updates to her original cases, O’Leary offers a new case on Private Bradley Manning and the WikiLeaks scandal, as well as new mini-stories for her Interlude sections.

A century of tradition in theory and practice are under fierce attack. Reformers argue the need to "reinvent" government and free its managers from dysfunctional processes and structures. Some theorists debate whether the dominant model-hierarchical bureaucracy controlled by authority-still describes how bureaucracies can-or should-operate. Other theorists seek formal models, driven by game theory, to provide more rigor. Everyone, in government and out, worries that government simply does not perform well. These battles frame an important paradox. Courses on public affairs and public administration are staples in every college and university, yet text materials often fail to capture the big battles in the field or excite students. Public managers feel that advice from academics does not adequately address or solve the challenges they face. CQ Press offers a solution to this problem. With a new series of brief books which take on the big issues and presents them in a lively and engaging fashion scholars, students, and practitioners alike will have a new compass to guide them through the fundamental debates reshaping the field. The books will connect policy areas to important administrative issues. They will examine emerging issues like performance management and information technology, and they will also explore lasting puzzles like federalism and budget reform. These books will probe for the story-behind-the-theory. They will provide lively examples of how these emerging processes might-or might not-reshape governance. -Don Kettl, series editor TITLES IN THIS SERIES The Ethics of Dissent: Managing Guerrilla Government Rosemary O'Leary December 2005 / ISBN 978-1-933116-60-0 System Under Stress: Homeland Security and American Politics Second Edition Donald F.

In System under Stress, The Challenge to 21st Century Democracy, Third Edition, Donald F. Kettl looks at the latest stress to hit the system--the financial crisis of 2008. In his brief, gripping narrative, Kettl assesses how well the U.S. political system responds under extraordinary pressure--from 9/11, to Hurricane Katrina, to the Great Recession-- and asks if the government is ready to face that next challenge. A well-known scholar, commentator, and writer in the areas of federalism and governance, Kettl asks the hard questions, makes a credible and persuasive argument, and crafts a readable case study that is fascinating and thought-provoking.

In an era filled with mistrust for big government and big business, Charles Goodsell goes against this grain to draw attention to public agencies admired for what they do and how well they do it. In his groundbreaking new book, Goodsell places renewed focus on organizational mission and its potential to be a strong energizing force in government--one that animates a workforce internally and attracts admiration and talent externally. He offers a normative template for the mystique that underlies this phenomenon and highlights--in six rich case studies--a driving sense of purpose, a cultural and motivational richness, and a capacity for tolerating dissent while still innovating and learning. Analyzing what works best (and what doesn't), Goodsell provides a metric through which agency mystique can be evaluated and modeled. Goodsell's fresh take on public agencies not only defines good public administration in terms of ethical conduct, constitutional accountability, and performance effectiveness, but argues that the field must add the crucial standard of institutional vitality.
