The authors suggest that some of the problems of the public sector are self-inflicted and that current policies may only deliver partial success 'at a price we cannot afford'. It proposes a radical alternative and discusses practical ways it could be implemented. It also explores the threats and opportunities that such an approach might face.

'This provocative and clarifying book ...invites us to contemplate the historic watershed that Britain is in, and offers a well-grounded, experience-based set of choices that would end the impotence and provide genuine opportunities for local governance that would work. It's an ambitious and clear call that is issued here; we cannot ignore it if we are to find our way out of this current negative spiral of insanity.'

- Dr Margaret Wheatley, Utah, USA
