Abstract

This article poses an anti-heroic creature of folklore and administrative experience as a potential personification of anti-administration. In these pages, the paradoxical and antagonistic figure of Trickster is offered in comparison and contrast to some protagonists and agonistic "heroes" of contemporary administrative theory. It is suggested that antagonism has imaginative and anti-administrative uses.
