This thesis is a study of public administration in the Isle of Man and is therefore broad in scope. It covers the structures of the administrative machine and the personnel procedures within it. It closely analyses the values of the political, actors within the system and the various influences which have led to its development. In particular it concentrates upon the predominant feature of the system, that it is a hybrid form displaying characteristics of both British central and local government and explains this by reference to the value system of the Manx political elite. It considers the extent to which these values are the result of imitation of British practice and explains why this imitation hasoccurred. In addition it examines the extent to which this pattern is analagous to that in the developing nations. Through its examination of the concept of hybridity, the thesis contributes to the general body of theory relating to public administration.It considers the concept's relevance to other systems and broadens the idea into a discussion of the relevance of eclecticism to other countries. This is found to be of general, broad significance in nations of any size or stage of development.
