2) Assignment PART II – Submit written answers that respond to the Weekly Question-Sets

The question sets are intended to stimulate reflection upon, and meaningful discussion of, course readings and themes. The answer to EACH question (one page in length, double-spaced) should respond DIRECTLY to the question posed. The purpose of this exercise is to encourage reflective reading and informed a synthesis of the material rather than a summarization the contents of the readings. Instead, make sure to engage with the questions raised, FOCUSING on interesting ideas, points of curiosity or complexity, or perhaps puzzles or paradoxes revealed. The Class 6 Question Set is as follows:

Reading Questions : for Class 6

1. What are the single most important conclusions from each of the three chapters??”the civil service reform, the army reform efforts and the dawn of federal business regulation??”that Skowronek would like us to take away for understanding the development of a New American State?

2. After reviewing Nelson’s three chapters dealing with the progressive period after the Civil War, what parts of his analysis do you see as either most important or most interesting for understanding the development of the American bureaucracy?
3. How does Carpenter use the examples of several federal departments in the post-civil war period to begin to make his argument about bureaucratic autonomy?
4. Compare and contrast the way that Cook views the respective views of Croly and Wilson concerning the appropriate role of public administration in the American state. How does this discussion fit in to Cook’s overall theme of instrumental and constitutive reasoning in public administration?
