'Frissen. . . . has written a "small narrative" in which he tries to tone down or even to destroy the "grand narratives" of politics as the societal centre. It is an important book. All debates and developments concerning the relationships between politics, governance and ICT are dealt with.' -- Jan A.G.M. van Dijk, NRC-Handelsblad
'The radical theses on politics proclaimed by Frissen will undoubtedly draw a lot of attention. . . . But first of all it is good to realise that the book has two faces. Apart from a polemic and postmodern "narrative" on politics and governance, the book also is a thorough and modern synthesis of an extensive and productive research programme in public administration. Frissen courageously elaborates the lines present in this program.' -- Willem Witteveen, Socialisme and Democratie
'The narrative deserves reading. Frissen joins the world of important thinkers and the question is whether the academic circles in The Netherlands are not too narrow for these thoughts to be unfolded.' -- N.J.M. Nelissen, Openbaar Bestuur
