​Das gleichzeitige Streben nach Nähe und Abstand sorgt für eines der stärksten Spannungsverhältnisse unserer Zeit. Die Fliehkräfte der Moderne vergrößern unsere Distanzen – vor allem durch die Trends der Rationalisierung, Spezialisierung, Urbanisierung, Industrialisierung und Zentralisierung – zu allem Natürlichen, Persönlichen, Kleinräumigen und unmittelbar Erfahrbarem. Und doch – oder gerade deshalb – leben wir in Zeiten der Globalisierung und Digitalisierung zugleich in einer Kultur, die emotionale Aufgeladenheit und Persönlichkeitsfixierung preist, mehr Nähe zu lokalen Problemlagen und den Betroffenen fordert und – medial vermittelt – ständige und „distanzlose“ Verfügbarkeit und Erreichbarkeit zu ermöglichen scheint. Der aktuelle Themenband der Zeppelin Universität präsentiert multidisziplinäre Annäherungen an Phänomene und Theorien des Unnahbaren. Die Beiträge zeigen theoretische und anwendungsorientierte Perspektiven auf, aus denen politische, wirtschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Phänomene der Distanz kritisch betrachtet und differenziert verortet werden. Der Themenbogen spannt sich dabei von Anwendungen des Distanzbegriffs in den Theorien privater und öffentlicher Organisationen über „Nähe-Distanz-Probleme“ im Verhältnis zwischen Staat, Eliten, Medien und Wählerschaft bis hin zu den Fragen des „Abstandwahrens“ in der Integrationspolitik, bei der Gestaltung von Kundenbeziehungen und in der Innovation akademischer Lehrformate.​

"Professor Samuel Krislov's "Representative Bureaucracy" remains among the most important and enduring books in the field of public administration and its intersection with political science. It takes the kernel of the idea, inchoately introduced in J. Donald Kingsley's 1944 book by the same title, that public bureaucracies can be representative political institutions and it develops an overall analytic framework with empirically testable propositions that has served subsequent generations scholars very well. So well, in fact, that as the literature on representative bureaucracy blossomed, these propositions have become so ingrained that many younger scholars are unaware of their initial formulation and roots. That is one reason why the republication of this volume now is not only appropriate, but a critical step toward more tightly organizing the vast literature that it arguably spawned into a comprehensive empirically-based theory integrating all facets of the study of representative bureaucracy.... Krislov entered into this contentiousness over affirmative action and agency socialization] with unusual balance, sophistication, and nuance-and substantial success in advancing our thinking about how public bureaucracies can and cannot be representative." - David H. Rosenbloom Distinguished Professor of Public Administration, American University, Washington D.C. ("from the new Foreword") "Whatever Sam Krislov has written has been well ahead of the curve. This important book was pathbreaking when it was first published and remains an important statement on a timely issue. With this republication, it will now be available to a new generation of scholars." - Malcolm M. Feeley Claire Sanders Clements Dean's Professor, Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program, Law School, University of California at Berkeley Part of the new "Classics of the Social Sciences" Series from Quid Pro Books, this modern republication of a foundational book in public administration and political science is presented with updated formatting, larger font, and embedded page numbers from the original edition-for continuity of referencing and ready classroom assignment.
