Governance in the Twenty-first Century Revitalizing the Public Service



Governance in the Twenty-first Century Revitalizing the Public Service by Guy Peters, Donald J. Savoie

In Governance in the Twenty-first Century Canadian and international experts recognize both the difficulty of making predictions and the need to consider the future in order to prepare the public sector for new challenges. The authors' predictions and recommendations are anchored in a thorough understanding of contemporary public administration. They point out that not only have previous reforms made yet more change necessary and inevitable but that the purpose of these reforms is to attempt to return government to the position of respect and competence it enjoyed in the past. Contributors include Peter Aucoin (Dalhousie), Jonathan Boston (University of Wellington, New Zealand), Jacques Bourgault (Ecole nationale d'administration publique Montreal), David R. Cameron (Toronto), Ralph Heintzman (Treasury Board Canada), Christopher Hood (London School of Economics and Political Science), Patricia W. Ingraham (The Maxwell School, Syracuse University), Donald P. Moynihan (The Maxwell School, Syracuse University), Jon Pierre (Goteborg University), B. Guy Peters, Christopher Pollitt (Erasmus University, The Netherlands), Donald J. Savoie, Richard Simeon (Toronto), Ignace Th.M. Snellen (Erasmus University, The Netherlands), and Vincent Wright (Oxford, England).


Governance in the Twenty-first Century provides very well-informed, current and timely, and insightful analyses of many of the most important issues facing the public services of many nations, with valuable discussions of how to respond to these challenges. The scholarship is excellent, and the use of sources and references is consistently authoritative. Hal G. Rainey, Political Science, University of Georgia

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

You can trust Lovereading to show unbiased reviews by actual, ordinary readers that help likeminded booklovers choose their next great read.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
