Democratic Governance
Mark Bevir

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Democratic Governance is a highly original, broad-ranging, and ambitious book that makes distinctive contributions to democratic theory, the sociology of knowledge, and public policy. Its major contribution is to show how relatively abstract social theories have informed, down to the details, agendas of political, administrative, and policy reform."--Archon Fung, Harvard University

"This impressive book draws upon a wide range of literatures in political science, sociology, policy analysis, and public administration to raise--and attempt to answer--pressing questions about the undemocratic or even antidemocratic implications of emerging models of 'governance.' Bevir traces the appeal of this recently coined term of art to conservative and neoliberal dissatisfactions with government, whose supposed inefficiencies could be corrected by allegedly more efficient modes such as markets."--Terence Ball, Arizona State University
