Book News: December 9th, 1998

Paul Joyce, Paul Corrigan and Mike Hayes.In what aims to be the first-ever practical guide specifically designed for the thousands of local government managers currently facing an unprecedented pace of change, three expert authors have produced a practical tool-kit style book that will help them to assume new ways of managing. It is a book made all the more necessary by the reforms that the new Labour Government is seeking, which are in turn presenting new challenges and making old ways of managing increasingly redundant.
