So-Called Experts now in Kindle edition

So-Called Experts: How American Consultants Remade the Canadian Civil Service, 1918-1921, is now available in a Kindle edition.  This short book was originally published by the Institute of Public Administration of Canada in 1996.  The book “examines the critical role of an emerging group of civil service experts whose view of the reform problem was driven by their experience in the corrupt world of Chicago’s municipal government. Struggling to establish their own credentials, these experts refused to concede that their prescriptions were irrelevant to the problems that the Canadian government faced at the end of the First World War.”
