Towards Holistic Governance by Professor Perri 6

Book Description

The search for a more holistic approach to policy and management looks set to be as much a hallmark of public service reform in the early 21st century as the changes introduced under the rubric of "new public management" or "reinventing government" were in the closing decades of the 20th century. This text presents an authoritative assessment of successes and failures to date and a new framework for analysis and implementation based on extensive research both in the UK where the New Labour government has been an early enthusiast and pathfinder for "joined up government" just as its predecessors were for privatisation and contracting out and elsewhere.

Public Emotions by Professor Perri 6 Public Emotions, Hardback (December 2006)

Emotions are central to our practices and understanding of public life. This book examines the political, social and personal consequences of public emotions in relation to conflict, ritual, social classification, collective life, identity, memory and power and is a multidisciplinary collaboration showing the emotional character of public life.

Beyond Delivery by Professor Perri 6 Beyond Delivery, Hardback (July 2006)

Sets out a critique of the dirigiste and mechanical ways in which some policy makers seek to exercise governance over the implementation of their policies. This book argues that the result of the effort to achieve central control through targets and inspection has undermined and failed to cultivate the long term organizational capabilities.

e-Governance by Professor Perri 6 e-Governance, Hardback (March 2004)

The e-governance revolution is said to be changing everything. Perri 6 examines this claim and presents a new theory of how policymakers use and reject information and do and don't trust each other with information in using new tools, before analyzing the implications for democracy.
