'A comprehensive, multidisciplinary examination of the concepts embodied in governance and their wide-ranging applications and implications. An important read and reference for students and academics in the social sciences, particularly those engaged in public policy studies' - Professor Carolyn J. Heinrich, University of Wisconsin-Madison
'An authoritative short survey for which students and teachers alike will be profoundly grateful' - Professor Rod Rhodes, University of Tasmania and Australian National University
Good book, but not focused enough on public management for my course
Great to ahve all the key concepts associated with governance in one place. The text is accessible and provides signals for further reading around key topics.
Bevir's book is a helpful source to gain a circumspect view over the various issues and problems involved in processes of governance at state and international levels. Transcending disciplinary modes of categorization, Bevir has arranged the topics in a fashion that reckons with the subtleties of governance as a real-world phenomenon.
