CONTRIBUTION OF NICHOLAS HENRY IN ANALYZING THE DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION AS A DISCIPLINE

Dr. Bharat Gore

Abstract


Due to its latest origin and too much interdisciplinary nature as well its existence as a practice, the consecutive growth of the discipline of Public Administration is very difficult to organize without any heated discussion. Traditionally Political Science has been regarded as the “mother discipline” of Public Administration while the discipline of Management has been regarded as the “counterpart” of Public Administration. For most period of its evolution, this discipline has been fluctuating between the realms of Political Science and Management. It has only been since 1970s that Public Administration has been regarded quite distinct from these two disciplines. In such position, Nicholas Henry’s studied narration regarding the evolution of the subject is very useful and farsighted.
