n Journal of Public Administration - The new and the old in the complex of power relations in the politics of knowledge - a polemic editorial




In the editorialisation of this 2012 March edition of the Journal of Public Administration I could not think of a more appropriate parlance with which to capture the thematic essence of the articles that comprise it than to say the greatness of scholarship is not in the age of a scholar, but in the wit and ingenuity employed to navigate unchartered epistemological grounds. It is in this context that this polemic editorial, nostalgic of the Minnowbrook intellectualism spawned by the complex of power relations in the contestation of intellectual space and the hegemonic gerontocracy competing with the new in shaping the evolution of public administration as a field of study, is themed.
