Abstract

ASPA in its fiftieth decade, as at its birth, remains caught up in challenges. This commentary reflects on the adversity from which ASPA grew; its roots, particularly its grounding in the Society for the Advancement of Management; and challenges for the future. Five areas of overemphasis in the past and five other topics for more rewarding future work in public administration are identified. If ASPA broadens its sights, building on strong foundations of experience, it will grow in both numbers and influence. Those foundations are in the linkage between success of constitutional democracy and successful public administration.
