by Zhao, Yongfei, M.A.P.A., Bowling Green State University, 2005, 194; 10817773
Abstract (Summary)

The government of China has made concerted efforts to modernize the society by undertaking major administrative reforms and by professionalizing public service education since 1999. In addition to various administrative reform programs initiated by Deng Xiaoping and implemented by Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, the inauguration of Master of Public Administration degree programs has provided the real meaning to those administrative reforms in enhancing the management capacity of government employees. All these efforts are directed toward establishing public administration as a discipline. This study provides (1) the historic overview of the development of public administration in China; (2) examines the administrative structures and reforms undertaken by the Chinese government to modernize administrative systems; (3) analyzes the establishment of MPA degree programs to develop professional public service; and (4) assesses the impact of globalization on political, administrative, and economic institutions in Chinese society. Throughout the study, a special attention has been paid to the examination of the impact of Chinese culture, values, tradition, and socialist ideology on the governance process.
