This study examines and contrasts the civil service systems of eight diverse Asian countries using a common comparative framework. The authors discuss several factors including, amongst others, historical development, internal labour markets, level of politicization, and the impact of reform. The authors demonstrate the utility of comparative research by analyzing the findings of the country studies and comparing the Asian countries against each other and the Asian experience as a whole against that of the West. They discover that there are considerable differences between the Asian civil service systems, illustrated by the degree to which political parties penetrate the civil service and the extent to which government agencies act as employers of last resort.
