Offering much more than a purely theoretical or retrospective view of public management, this exciting text is an invaluable new addition to the field of public management. Putting the American model in perspective, it establishes the historical, theoretical, analytical, practical and future foundations for the comparative study of public management.

Taking a boldly integrative approach, Laurence E. Lynn Jr. combines topics of best practice, performance, accountability and rule of law to provide a much-needed umbrella view of the topic.

Well-written and illustrated with case study examples, this is one of the most exciting books on public management available today. As such it is an essential read for every student of public management, administration and public policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is both ambitious and accessible. Larry Lynn delivers immense scholarship and uncompromising logic in fine style. A must-read for those who want to understand the field of public management. Larry Lynn is one of the very few scholars with the breadth and depth to carry this off.' - Christopher Pollitt, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Scientific Director, Netherlands Institute of Government

'Public Management: Old and New is nothing less than an intellectual history of public administration. Larry Lynn convincingly argues that innovations in public management are path dependent, greatly influenced by a nation's history, institutions, and culture. His theme, that the driving force for change in public administration is democracy, establishes Lynn as the scholarly heir to Dwight Waldo. Broad ranging and sweeping in scope, it speaks to both scholars of public administration and other social scientists interested in modern governance.' - Kenneth J. Meier, Texas A&M University, USA
