About this book


Governance, Administration and Development provides a comprehensive introduction to the public policy process and public administration in developing countries. The authors start by describing the complex, challenging and varied environments of the developing world and go on to analyse the key contemporary issues concerning the reform of the public sector - notably the impact of the 'new public management'. The book is illustrated throughout with up-to-date case study materials and guidance for students seeking to explore specialist topics in detail.
