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.
