  • ISSN : 0036-0767



(Van Schaik Publishers) is a welcome addition to the growing list of titles aimed at re-conceptualising the role and reinvigorating the local study of government administration in developmental activities. Designed primarily as an academic text, the book comprises a broad historical overview of concepts, practices, policy prescripts and their research implications. It provides a comprehensive introduction with a local flavour to fundamental questions about the interface between government, the private sector, non-governmental organisations and public constituencies, and is particularly well suited to second year students of politics and public administration.
