The SAGE Handbook of Governance

Mark Bevir,

The SAGE Handbook of Governance
 
 
The study of governance has risen to prominence as a way of describing and explaining changes in our world. The SAGE Handbook of Governance presents an authoritative and innovative overview of this fascinating field, with particular emphasis on the significant new and emerging theoretical issues and policy innovations.

The Handbook is divided into three parts. Part one explores the major theories influencing current thinking and shaping future research in the field of governance. Part two deals specifically with changing practices and policy innovations, including the changing role of the state, transnational and global governance, markets and networks, public management, and budgeting and finance. Part three explores the dilemmas of managing governance, including attempts to rethink democracy and citizenship as well as specific policy issues such as capacity building, regulation, and sustainable development.

This volume is an excellent resource for advanced students and researchers in political science, economics, geography, sociology, and public administration.

Mark Bevir is a Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley.
