Although the concept of policy networks is now well-established in the field, most research has to content itself with description and analysis of their contribution to policy failure. This book goes further. It accepts policy networks as a fundamental characteristic of modern societies and presents an overview of the strategies for the management of these networks, as well as illustrating the various strategies for intervention.

`Today some of the most interesting advances in network management theory and its applications to the public sector find their origins in Europe. This text [is] well worth the attention of serious policy and public administration scholars... and graduate students' - Professor Richard Stillman II, Graduate School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado at Denver

`Networks or subsytems are the unit of analysis to which we must turn our attention if progress is to continue in the social sciences and applied fields. This volume points the way' - Professor Gary L Wamsley, Center for Public Administration and Policy, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
