|Title:||The Canadian Federal Public Administration in the 1930's|
|Authors:||Vaison, Anthony Robert|

|Keywords:||Political Science;Political Science|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis studies the evolution and development of the federal public administration during the Thirties - a period in which many of the root s of what we know as the modern positive state were implanted. An era of social upheaval and turmoil, the decade provided an environment conducive to new concepts and relatively 'radical' solutions to issues surrounding the role of the public sector; the federal public administraion - the administrative arm of government - was markedly affected by these developments.</p> <p>Employing a basically historical framework, the thesis attempts to relate changes in this realm to factors outside of it: sociopolitical events, economic developments, personalities of leaders, aspects of the Canadian political culture. In such a fashion the undertaking seeks to shed light on a little-discussed segment of Canadian public administration.</p>|
