Book News: November 15th, 2000

By Sylvia Horton and David FarnhamThis wide-ranging text analyses the key developments and changes in the management of the major public services in Britain during the 1990s. Designed as a successor to the editors’ highly successful Managing the New Public Services, the book places public management and, in particular, the ‘Third Way’ as adopted by New Labour, in its economic, political and historical context, including the impact of globalization and European
integration. Extended case studies illustrate and highlight key stages in the transformation of management and the book concludes with an evaluation and critique of two decades of managerial reform and a discussion of the way forward in the new millennium.
