'... voluminous coverage of the relevant literature, sophisticated handling of a range of theoretical perspectives and empirical demonstrations from a range of countries and settings ... students of governance, from those introducing themselves to the topic to seasoned researchers, will find much of value in this book.' Gerry Stoker, University of Southampton 'Well written and well executed, this book makes a persuasive case that the state remains a central actor in contemporary governing even while modes of governing themselves have evolved - an important corrective to claims of `governance without government ...' Grace Skogstad, University of Toronto 'Stephen Bell and Andrew Hindmoor have produced an exemplary scholarly study, which is meticulous, spirited and lucid ... This excellent work deserves wide attention and influence. In future debates concerning the formal apparatus of the state, it should be the basic reference.' Ian Marsh, The Australian Journal of Political Science
