            Examines the challenges of working collaboratively in and with governments with a strong New Public Management (NPM) influence. As the evidence from New Zealand analyzed in this study demonstrates, collaboration - working across organization boundaries and with the public - was n...ot inherently a part of the NPM and was often discouraged or ignored.

            From the author of the international bestseller Debt: The First 5,000 Years comes a revelatory account of the way bureaucracy rules our lives Where does the desire for endless rules, regulations, and bureaucracy come from? How did we come to spend so much of our time filling out ...forms? And is it really a cipher for state violence? To answer these questions, the anthropologist David Graeber one of our most important and provocative thinkers traces the peculiar and unexpected ways we relate to bureaucracy today, and reveals how it shapes our lives in ways we may not even notice though he also suggests that there may be something perversely appealing even romantic about bureaucracy. Leaping from the ascendance of right-wing economics to the hidden meanings behind Sherlock Holmes and Batman, The Utopia of Rules is at once a powerful work of social theory in the tradition of Foucault and Marx, and an entertaining reckoning with popular culture that calls to mind Slavoj Zizek at his most accessible. An essential book for our times, The Utopia of Rules is sure to start a million conversations about the institutions that rule over us and the better, freer world we should, perhaps, begin to imagine for ourselves.

            The COVID-19 pandemic was not inevitable. We could have stopped it, and we still can stop the next one. Preventable is an important and illuminating book on how politics shape our health. Drawing on the recent history of outbreaks, it examines the triggers behind global health cr...ises and why we so often get our response to them wrong. Comparing the spread of coronavirus in various parts of the world, Professor Devi Sridhar explores why countries such the US and the UK have-against expectations-suffered losses far worse than their poorer neighbours, and how the memory of other recent outbreaks led to very different outcomes in South Korea and West Africa. Combining science, politics, ethics and economics, it is a dazzling dissection of the global structures that determine our fate, and the deep-seated economic and social inequalities at their heart. Highlighting lessons learned from past and present, Sridhar sets out a vision for how we can better protect ourselves from the inevitable health crises to come. It is an urgent book that will challenge, outrage and inspire.

            Explore the gender dimension and expand the dialogue in your classroom through this collection of case studies, empirical studies, and theoretical essays on women's issues in public administration. Until now, there has been a paucity of research exploring how gender informs theor...y and practice in public administration which undermines the equitable representation of women in our society and precludes the integration of gender analysis into public sector practice and policies. This is the first book of its kind written about the female endeavor in public administration from the perspective of female public administrators and academics. Women in Public Administration illuminates women's past and emerging challenges, in a predominantly male based public sector that are fundamental to practitioners, students, and faculty of public administration and policy. For example, how women administrators have been affected by male dominated labor markets, ethics and law, management, financial institutions, and public service. This book extends beyond the existing works in the field by furthering the discussion and bridging the gender gap in public administration theory and praxis by continuing the efforts of the female public administrators who began to unravel the inequity in our public organizations and the under representation of women in our society.
