"This is a refreshing and contemporary text: it discusses current public services in the light of major recent developments (after the financial crisis), is broadly embedded in the academic and social science literatures and covers a lot of ground well. I found it an intelligent and illuminating discussion of the current state of play in public services management." - Ewan Ferlie, Professor of Public Services Management, Department of Management, King's College London, UK Reviews of first edition: "...this is a very valuable book. Ian Greener has tackled the difficult task of writing a text on public management which is both accessible and critical and he has succeeded admirably." - The Journal of Social Policy"Greener's book will be invaluable reading for anyone seeking a grounding in the key ideas and issues concerning public management, whether they are a researcher, student, or a manager in a public sector organization." - Management Learning
