Details

Drawing on extensive research and 40 years’ experience as a civil servant, Michael Coolican describes how the machinery of government has developed since the time of Thomas Cromwell. His forthright account assesses the successes and failures of Whitehall departments in implementing government policy, and explains how Victorian reforms created an elitist culture of nepotism. He argues that the resulting poor leadership, distrust of modern management practices and preference for generalists over experts affect the service to this day.
