Frederick the Great on Government and Public Administration
American Review of Public Administration
This article discusses the political and administrative ideas of Frederick the Great, as expressed in his writings, and attempts to assess their significance for American public administration thinking. Frederick's ideas on enlightened government, the good of the state, and the role of public administration are examined here. It is argued that the ideas espoused by Frederick have been influential in American public administration thinking about the role of public administration and the nature of the state. [R]
