Few textbooks on Australain public administration provide an historial context, but Caiden's two early studies Career Service (1965) and The Commonwealth Bureaucracy (1967) are exceptions. He accepted the premise that the historiography of administrative history could not be understood if not explicitly linked to the political, social and economic environment in which it occurs.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
