MEDIA REVIEWS

"This work represents an important contribution in several...In line with Abeles and Bellier's study of the culture of compromise at the Commission, this book offers a description of this institution drawing on political anthropology, which fills a gap in recent studies. Management and Culture in an Enlarged European Commission is based on impressive efforts at data collection: over six years, from 2006 to 2012, Carolyn Ban conducted about 140 semi-structured interviews with EU officials in Brussels and 91 semi-structured interviews with managers inside the governments of six new member states... The fact that she conducted the interviews by herself contributes appreciably to the quality of the collected information."

Stephanie Novak of the Hertie School of Governance, Germany.
