'The Danes have done it again: advancing the field of public administration in a way that is both imaginative and helpful. Public Governance Paradigms provides us with a highly sophisticated "think piece" about the consecutive philosophies and designs of how to design and run a system of government that have emerged since Max Weber laid down his model of bureaucracy. Clear, concise, balanced, and constructive, this book effortlessly traverses a hundred years of public sector scholarship and reform. Easily the single best compass available to students, researchers and practitioners seeking to balance continuity and innovation in the ways in which we envisage and craft our public institutions and their professional practices.' -- Paul 't Hart, Utrecht University and Netherlands School of Public Administration, the Netherlands
'This book orients readers to the major issues and debates concerning how the public sector should be organized and run. The authors brilliantly use their "public governance diamond" to provide back-to-back comparisons of seven different public governance paradigms, bringing each paradigm's relative strengths and weaknesses into clear focus.' -- Christopher Ansell, University of California, Berkeley
