About the Author

Matthew Flinders is Reader in Parliamentary Government and Governance at the University of Sheffield. He is a past recipient of the Political Studies Association's Harrison Prize (2002) and Richard Rose Prize (2004). During 2005-2006 he held both a Leverhulme Research Fellowship and a Whitehall Fellowship within the Cabinet Office.


The frightening evidence of quango power comes in Delegated Governance and the British State... a book that won Professor Flinders an award from the Political Studies Association... and I understand that Liam Byrne and his so-called smarter government team have been pouring over it for months. (As have the Tories apparently). * Sue Cameron, Financial Times *
