The interdependencies between politics, governance and technology have created a 'virtual state'. The author analyses this development within the framework of postmodernism in order to illustrate the importance of adopting a postmodern perspective to understand the theory and practice of public administration and politics.

This book examines the special connections linking politics, administration and technology in the 'information society'. Paul Frissen describes recent developments both within public administration and in postmodernism and uses examples from Dutch public administration in order to emphasise the importance of the postmodern perspective. Finally, the author considers the role of politics in the virtual state.

This book will prove to be invaluable to scholars of public and social policy, public administration and politics.

The translation was funded by NWO, the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Acclaim for the Dutch edition:

'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.'
