Since the 1990s, there has been a transformation in the management of the public sector. The rigid, bureaucratic form of public administration which dominated for most of the 20th century has been replaced by a flexible, market based form of public management. "Public Management and Administration" introduces and assesses the principles and theories underlying changes in the management of the public sector. Systematically revised and updated throughout, the third edition of this text includes a new chapter on the impact of e-governance and expanded coverage of financial and performance management.

'A clear and balanced account of the way public services management has changed and is changing...The great thing about Owen Hughes' book...is that it maps out lucidly and coherently the bigger picture of public services reform.' - Kieran Walshe, Health Service Journal
Review comment on previous editions:
'A strength of the book is the admirable clarity of its arguments. Indeed, this is one of the best written books of its kind that I have come across. Nor does it suffer from the limitations of country-specific studies, treating the NPM as an international phenomenon.' - Chris Painter, Teaching Public Administration

Summary: Since the mid-1980s, the public sectors of Western countries have undergone major change as governments try to respond to the challenges of technological change, globalization, and international competitiveness. This book provides an introduction to, and assessment of, the theories and principles of the new public management and compares and contrasts these with the traditional model of public administration. The second edition maintains the same essential argument as the first edition but updates it in several areas. Events since the writing of the first edition have shown even more clearly that a major shift has been underway in the management of the public sectors around the world, although the pace of change is greater in some countries than in others. Also, a new chapter has been added to discuss the particular problems of public management in developing countries. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0333961889
