The inadequacies of contemporary forms of governance are increasingly recognized: the brain drain from politics, distrust of governments, the danger of mass media and money-dominated elections, and the failure of governments to find good policy options on major issues. Industry, civil society and non-governmental organizations, however important, cannot compensate for government's incapacity to shape the future, which only it is democratically entitled to do. Radical improvements in governance are urgently needed, but salient proposals are scarce. This book diagnoses contemporary governments as obsolete and proposes changes in values, structures, staffing, public understanding and political culture to equip governance for the radically novel challenges of the 21st century. This is the first Report dealing with governance commissioned and approved by the Club of Rome, testifying to the significance of this book.

About the Author:

Yehezkel Dror is Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Wolfson Chair in Public Administration at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is a Member of the Club of Rome. He serves as Senior Policy Analysis and Planning Advisor in the Office of the Israeli Minister of Defense and worked as a consultant on behalf of the United Nations and OECD in many countries.

Review:

'A great effort at linking an ethically practical philosophy of responsibility for the future with practical suggestions for actions...The book offers a whole array of practical advice resembling a theory of government that distinguishes itself favourably from over-intellectualized academic speculation on politics and state' Leonhard Neidhart, Neue Zuricher Zeitung
