Government of Risk by Christopher Hood

Book Description

Why does regulation vary so dramatically from one area to another? Why are some risks regulated aggressively and others responded to only modestly? Is there any logic to the techniques we use in risk regulation? These key questions are explored in The Government of Risk. This book looks at a number of risk regulation regimes, considers the respects in which they differ, and examines how these differences can be justified. Analyzing regulation in terms of 'regimes' allows us to see the rich, multi-dimensional nature of risk regulation. It exposes the thinness of society-wide analyses of risk controls and it offers a perspective that single case studies cannot reach. Regimes analysis breaks down the components of risk regulation systems and shows how they interact. It also shows how different parts of the same regime may be shaped by different factors and have to be explained and understood in quite different ways. The Government of Risk shows how such an approach is of high policy relevance as well as of considerable theoretical importance.

Government That Worked Better and Cost Less? by Christopher Hood Government That Worked Better and Cost Less?, Hardback (April 2015)

Written in an accessible style, this book offers an unparalleled insight into the 'modernization' of UK government from 1980 to the present day, and provides a distinctive framework for evaluating long-term performance in government.

When the Party's Over by Christopher Hood When the Party's Over, Hardback (October 2014)

This book examines nine historical cases of fiscal squeeze in democracies. It combines quantitative and qualitative analysis to examine cases ranging from the United States in the 1830s/40s (when half of the states then in the Union defaulted) to the squeeze following the 2001 Argentinian default. It warns against a simplistic view of 'what works'.
