It is a major contribution to research over a plethora of fields and topics, and the utility of Dorothy Smith's methods and approach shines through the volume." -- Miriam David, Emeritus Professor, Department of Quantitative Social Science, Institute of Education, University of London "This is an exciting, well-organized, and well-written collection of essays, rich with details about the process of restructuring the public sector in a variety of contexts." -- Nancy A. Naples, Department of Sociology, University of Connecticut "Institutional ethnography provides a powerful set of tools for examining the impact of public sector restructuring on the everyday practices of program delivery across a range of health, education, and social services. Under New Public Management explores the deep implications of new policy frames and shifting front-line practices." -- Alan D. Sears, Department of Sociology, Ryerson University
