Offering much more than a purely theoretical or retrospective view of public management, this exciting book is an invaluable new addition to the field of public management. Putting the American model in perspective for academics around the world, this book establishes the historical, theoretical, analytical, practical and future foundations for the comparative study of public management.Taking a boldly integrative approach, Lynn Laurence combines topics of best practice, performance, accountability and rule of law to offer a much-needed umbrella view of the topic. Well-written and illustrated with case study examples, this is one of the most exciting books on public management available today.

Laurence E. Lynn, Jr. is Chair and professor of Public Affairs at the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University, and co-author of Improving Governance: A New Logic for Empirical Research.
