9780199226443: The Oxford Handbook of Public Management (Oxford Handbooks)

The public sector continues to play a strategic role across the world. The last thirty years have seen major shifts in approaches to public sector management in many countries. There is also a fierce debate across academic disciplines about contemporary public administration/management: some advocate the use of more managerialist approaches; while others see managerialism as undermining democratic institutions. New roles have arisen, such as programme evaluation, management consulting, and reliance on NGOs and partnerships, which require new assessments. There is an intensified need for an analysis of contemporary public sector organisations, which are changing rapidly before our eyes.

It is thus time for an authoritative treatment of the major trends in public management, embracing both their intended and unintended consequences. This Handbook brings together leading international scholars to comment on key current issues. The individual chapters include broad overviews, in depth explorations of particular thematic areas and analyses of different theoretical perspectives such as political science, management, sociology and economics. The authors have space to develop their distinctive arguments. The editors provide an overall concluding chapter. The Handbook combines scholarly rigour, engaging writing and high policy relevance. It will be invaluable to advanced students, researchers and reflective public sector practitioners.

About the Series

Review:


"The book is a success. It meets the aims set out at the beginning and does so in a way that is erudite, but accessible, comprehensive, but not overly complex. It deserves its place on the reading list and the library shelves."--Journal of Public Administration, Vol.84, No.4, 2006


"It will merit its place on the library shelves for you and for your students for a good few years."--Local Government Studies


"The Oxford Handbook of Public Management is an invaluable source for anyone interested in public management scholarship. The chapters provide an excellent starting point for researchers interested in specific areas. Many of its chapters are suitable for public management graduate courses and, in some cases, offer the most polished overview of a specific topic I have read."--Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory
