To What Extent Are These Ideologies Compatible with One Another?

Series:

Sung-Don Hwang

Bureaucracy vs. Democracy in the Minds of Bureaucrats deals with a central theme highlighted in debates about the principles of governing society: the relationship between bureaucracy and democracy. Taking the psycho-cultural approach, this book focuses on the extent to which the two ideologies are perceived as being compatible or incompatible with one another in the minds of bureaucrats. Within the frameworks of LISREL and Q Methodology, it juxtaposes theoretical understandings of the relationship between bureaucracy and democracy with those actually understood by bureaucrats. This book also examines major factors that affect the relationship between bureaucratic and democratic ideologies postulated in the minds of bureaucrats.
