Presents an account of the regulatory state and governance. This book examines both key concepts and theories, and important policy domains, and utilizes comparative, historical and transnational perspectives. It questions whether the regulatory state that has developed over the decades is an authoritarian or a liberalizing mode of governance.

Editorial Reviews

'It is very successful. [The author] has spotted the need for an accessible account of the whole regulation literature and has very successfully filled it [...] The text goes well beyond the introductory text level in locating so much of the regulatory literature in many of the classical themes of sociology, and many of the classic writers [...] of established writers on regulation I think only John Braithwaite has this sensitivity to its place in the wider history of social enquiry.' - Michael Moran, W.J.M. Mackenzie Professor of Government, University of Manchester, UK
