On June 12, 2018, Paul 't Hart's new book was launched at the Spui Theatre in The Hague. The book, written in Dutch and titled Dienen en Beinvloeden: Verhalen Over Ambtelijk Vakmanschap, examines the craft of top civil servants through an up close examination of the 40-year career of the former secretary of the Dutch Prime minister's department, Wim Kuijken. Centrepiece of the book are 7 case narratives about complex and high profile cases, each examining a different set of professional and leadership challenges to top civil servants. Each case narrative is followed by a reflective essay, placing the events of the case in a broader context.
The book is open access and can be downloaded here.
