Beschreibung:
This book examines the factors that affect work
performance of Ghanaian bureaucrats. Three decades
ago Robert Price (1975) examined the impact that
kinship ties had on the motivation of Ghanaian
bureaucrats. This study followed the work of Price by
replicating his mix of interviews and surveys, with
the addition of questions that incorporate recent
work on bureaucracy by John Brehm and Scott Gates
(1997). Utilizing a mix of interviews and surveys of
public servants from the Civil Service and the Ghana
Education Service, I find that motivation of Ghanaian
bureaucrats involves pecuniary, solidary and
functional preferences as well as kinship ties. This
is an excellent book for courses in public
administration, African government and politics, and
for scholars interested in the study of motivation.
It will also be useful for students of sociology.
