Public Sector Reform (2013), edited by Prof. Andrew Massey

Public Sector Reform is endemic to public administrations and governmental structures globally. It is driven by a variety of dynamics and these vary according to their specific context: geographical, cultural, social, pillows, political, economic and temporal. This four-volume set brings together elements of the classical and modern work in this diverse field in a comprehensive and accessible way; providing an indispensable resource for both academics and practitioners from a social science and business perspective.
