Public Management and Change series

Beryl A. Radin, series editor

The Public Management and Change series seeks to publish research and theoretical contributions that advance the understanding of public institutions and their management, both of which operate in an era of significant change. These books are intended to be used in the graduate-level classroom as well as by scholars and practitioners.

The series addresses the increasing complexity of the public sector, encompassing governmental jurisdictions, nonprofit and private organizations that contract with government, as well as non-public institutions that engage in projects and activities that have public purposes or implications. The field of public management has developed from a small subfield of political science to an international, multidisciplinary enterprise that draws on concepts and methods from sociology, anthropology, economics, history, and general management. This series captures those developments by highlighting works that illustrate these approaches and that shed new light on the problems of public management today. The series is increasingly global in both its readership and its focus on cross-national and comparative research.

The more than 30 books already published in the series have emphasized issues of performance measurement and accountability, collaboration, street-level bureaucracy, networks, and public-private partnerships. Books in the series have won prestigious awards from the American Political Science Association, the Academy of Management, and the American Society for Public Administration. This series is no longer accepting new manuscripts.
