520    "Public services touch the majority of people in advanced 
       and developing economies on a daily basis: children 
       require schooling, the elderly need personal care and 
       assistance, rubbish needs collecting, water must be safe 
       to drink and the streets need policing. In short, there is
       practically no area of our lives that isn't touched in 
       some way by public services. As such, knowledge about 
       strategies to improve their performance is central to the 
       good of society. In this book, a group of leading scholars
       examine some of the most pressing issues in public 
       administration, political science and public policy by 
       undertaking a systematic review of the research literature
       on public management and the performance of public 
       agencies. It is an important resource for public 
       management researchers, policy-makers and practitioners 
       who wish to understand the current state of the field and 
       the challenges that lie ahead"--|cProvided by publisher.
