Despite predictions that 'new public management' would establish itself as the new paradigm of Public Administration and Management, recent academic research has highlighted concerns about the intra-organizational focus and limitations of this approach. This book represents a comprehensive analysis of the state of the art of public management, examining and framing the debate in this important area.

 

The New Public Governance? sets out to explore this emergent field of research and to present a framework with which to understand it. Divided into five parts, the book examines:

 

  • Theoretical underpinnings of the concept of governance, especially competing perspectives from Europe and the US
  • Governance of inter-organizational partnerships and contractual relationships
  • Governance of policy networks
  • Lessons learned and future directions

 

Under the steely editorship of Stephen Osborne and with contributions from leading academics including Owen Hughes, John M. Bryson, Don Kettl, Guy Peters and Carsten Greve, this book will be of particular interest to researchers and students of public administration, public management, public policy and public services management.

About the Author:

Stephen P. Osborne is Professor of International Public Management and Director of the Centre for Public Services Research at the University of Edinburgh, UK. He is President of the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM) and Editor of Public Management Review (PMR).

Review:

‘Stephen Osborne is to be congratulated for assembling an impressive array of contributors and producing a text which makes a major contribution to the debates about this emerging paradigm.’ - Robert Pyper, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK

'This book showcases the best writing on ‘public governance’, bringing together new research in institutional analysis, policy dynamics, and government-society relationships. It provides a good balance of conceptual insights and empirical analysis grounded in the large changes evident in advanced countries in recent decades.' - Brian Head, University of Queensland, Australia

'This text, edited by Stephen Osborne, may do as much for critical insight to Europe’s public service delivery as the David Osborne and Ted Gaebler text on Reinventing Government did for the United States in the 1990s in refocusing the public sector for improvement.' - Dean F. Eitel, DePaul University, USA
