9781446270424: The SAGE Handbook of Governance

This Handbook presents an authoritative and innovative overview of this fascinating field, with particular emphasis on the significant new and emerging concepts and theoretical issues. Divided into four parts, the first explores the major theories influencing current thinking and shaping future research in the field of governance. Part two deals specifically with issues surrounding new theories - the changing role of the state and the emerging function of networks and of alternative domains of governance. Parts three and four then go on to consider the implications for managing governance and recent attempts to rethink democracy and citizenship in ways that are less tied to the formal institutions of the state.

He was born in London and educated at the University of Exeter, U.K., where he got a BA (1st Class), and the University of Oxford, UK where he was awarded a DPhil. Before moving to Berkeley, he worked at the University of Madras, India, and University of Newcastle, UK. He has held visiting positions in Australia, Finland, France, U.K., and the U.S. Currently he is co-convener of the Interpretive Political Science specialist group of the Political Studies Association and President of the Society for the Philosophy of History.

Review:

′While the verb "to govern" and the noun "government" are well established terms, "governance" is relatively new to social science vocabulary. What does "it" mean? Mark Bevir′s Handbook of Governance is a welcomed contribution to a clearer understanding of this emerging seminal concept. Drawing on some of the best 21st century minds in this field, his Handbook is probative and exploratory, one that wrestles with the basic theory, modern practice, and central dilemmas of "governance". Readers are thus treated to profound and urgently needed insights into its meaning and significance today′ -

Richard Stillman, University of Colorado, Denver.
