Reviews

'Global reform of governmental bureaucracies during the past 20 years or so has left academics and practitioners alike with a multitude of new questions, to which many old answers are no longer relevant. This book at once comprehensive yet sharply focused in its scope is an invaluable contribution to the search for new answers. It deserves to be widely read.'

- Robert Gregory, Professor of Political Science, School of Government, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

'Governance of Public Sector Organizations presents intriguing results from an international data collection effort. The volume offers a comprehensive analysis of contemporary institutional developments in central government, particularly the role of executive agencies in governance. Drawing on an international network of senior scholars, this book is theoretically rich, conceptually clear, and methodologically innovative. It is a significant contribution to our knowledge of the executive agencies.'

- Jon Pierre, Professor of Political Science, Department of Government, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
