    Abstract

    This paper briefly explores instances of administrative indigenization—defined as native patterns neither imposed nor copied from Euro-centric systems—and implications for the study of Comparative Public Administration. China and Iran—as presented in the Comparative Public Administration literature, broadly defined—are suggested as iconoclastic administrative models which are both viable and interesting and in contrast with Western (Northern) models of study and application. Other emerging models—many of them based on grass-roots movements (not to be confused with terrorist movements)—also provide alternatives to the prescriptions of the New Public Management as well as to the conventional secular, “non-political” hierarchies. Comparative Public Administration needs to accommodate such alternatives on a coequal basis. Copyright Springer Science + Business Media, Inc. 2005
