Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'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
