about

This is a highly readable and comprehensive account of the regulatory state and governance. It examines both key concepts and theories and important policy domains, and utilises comparative, historical and transnational perspectives. A critical theme is consideration of whether the regulatory state that has developed in recent decades, often as an accompaniment to marketization public policies, is an authoritarian or a liberalizing mode of governance.
ROGER KING is Visiting Professor at the Centre for Higher Education Research and Information at The Open University and a Higher Education Consultant. Previously he was Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside (now Lincoln). He writes and researches on comparative policymaking and regulatory governance.
