Description - Managing the United Kingdom by Grahame F. Thompson
"Managing the United Kingdom" provides a new framework for the study of government and politics, making use of three models of co-ordination central to the analysis of the public and private sectors in UK: markets, hierarchies and networks. These models are presented in the first three chapters. Eight chapters provide case studies of co-ordination drawn from major areas of UK economic and political life. The analysis of each study relates back to the three models and explores how they exemplify the organizational character of the area, region or service. Tightly organized and written in an accessible style, managing the United Kingdom is the ideal introduction to political economy, public policy and government at 1st or 2nd year undergraduate level.
