In this comprehensive and very wide ranging collection of papers from specific countries across the globe, a group of eminent and capable academics in the fields of public administration, policy and management draw on a vast amount of theoretical, empirical and comparative data to provide an up to date and timely collection of work aiming to explain the underpinning currents of the public sector reform phenomenon. This is a set of excellently written papers, brought together as a whole to provide a first rate resource for current and existing scholars in the field. Most of the research is based on empirical case material from some of the CARICOM countries, but one of the booka€™s key strengths is the keen location of findings on firm theoretical foundations, backed up with existing comparative data from other parts of the globe. It will prove a useful, first rate resource for other scholars who want to ascertain the key trends, challenges and dilemmas of public sector reform across the world. The first two, thought-provoking chapters set the global context of public sector reform, but are also strong on theoretical and comparative analysis. The remaining chapters introduce readers to a series of excellent in-depth, empirical and theoretical contributions, but they are not confined to the cases and countries under investigation, as all draw from existing theoretical, empirical and comparative data sources. The authors have given us a deeper sense of understanding of the countries being examined, and their underpinning knowledge of the political systems within which public sector reforms are taking place is very evident in this excellent book. Taken as a whole, this publication provides a set of well written chapters that will provide a very interesting reading.2. 107-127.
