Public Management and Governance

Tony Bovaird and Elke Loeffler (eds.), Routledge, Abingdon and New York, 2016.

This third edition examines key issues in efficient management and good quality service in the public sector. With contributions from leading authors in the field, it looks at how the process of governing needs to be altered fundamentally to remain legitimate and to make the most of society’s many resources.

Key themes include:


  • challenges and pressures facing modern governments worldwide
  • the changing role of the public sector in a ‘mixed economy’ of provision
  • governance issues such as ethics, equalities, and citizen engagement 

This new edition has an increased international scope and includes new chapters on democratic governance, user and community co-production and managing complex adaptive systems.
