Industry Reviews

`Raise[s] extremely important issues which make a useful contribution to a debate which has scarcely begun about the proper role of managers and management in public services.... The book locates the rise of management within a social and political context, a crucial and neglected issue. Further, it presents a welcome recognition of the compexity of managerialism.... A comprehensive and critical examination of managerialism. Like all good books, it stimulates, particularly when one does not agree, and some of the chapters deserve to be read and reread' - Local Government Studies
