    • Abstract:
      While Fox and Miller's Postmodern Public Administration failed to create a valid outline for a genuinely postmodern administrative governance, it did make an important contribution by defining the key issue that the field currently faces. Both the book's failure and its success can be understood against a sociology of knowledge backdrop that explains the advantaged position that science occupies in pursuing its agenda of knowledge development and that describes the difficulties that beset social science, especially applied fields such as public administration. Though Fox and Miller's critique of the loop model of democracy was cogent and prescient, their primary contribution was to expose the conservative sociological constraints that have worked to block critique and the development of true alternatives to modernist forms of administrative structure and practice. Traditional sociology of knowledge prescriptions for overcoming these constraints appear as ineffective or unworkable, but it does seem possible to lay a foundation for true innovation by creating new and supportive sociological contexts within which public administration scholars can work.
