Beschreibung:

Clear, student-friendly introduction to the technical concepts and policies of contemporay governance.
′A comprehensive, multidisciplinary examination of the concepts embodied in governance and their wide-ranging applications and implications. An important read and reference for students and academics in the social sciences, particularly those engaged in public policy studies′ - Professor Carolyn J. Heinrich, University of Wisconsin-Madison




′An authoritative short survey for which students and teachers alike will be profoundly grateful′ - Professor Rod Rhodes, University of Tasmania and Australian National University





′Students of governance will welcome this book given the explosion of literature in the field. It provides a quick guide to key concepts and ideas but does so with considerable originality. We are offered not just a review of well-established positions but a distinctive take on the governance debate′ - Gerry Stoker, Professor of Governance, University of Southampton





The language of governance has risen to prominence in the last 20 years as a way of describing and explaining changes in the nature and role of the state, but the concepts involved can be confusing as they are often new and come from diverse disciplinary and theoretical settings.



Key Concepts in Governance provides a clear introduction to the technical concepts and policies of contemporary governance through short definitional essays. Each entry features:



" a snapshot definition of the concept


" a contextualization of the concept


" an overview of relevant debates


" a guide to further reading.



The book also includes a substantial introductory chapter which gives an overview of governance studies as a whole, orientating and guiding the reader around the issues that the concepts address.



Highly readable, with clear cross-referencing, this is an ideal book for students on introductory courses and an indispensable resource for anyone interested in governance.
