Editorial Reviews

'This is a book that teachers of public management will find invaluable. Change and innovation have special characteristics in the public sector and this book recognizes that and the constraints and opportunities facing public managers. Written in a clear and accessible way, it is nevertheless comprehensive in its coverage of the English-language literature on both topics. This listing of learning objectives, key points, new terms and discussion points make it a useful tool for teachers and learners, whether advanced undergraduates, postgraduates or practitioners.' - Norman Flynn, University of London, UK
