Beschreibung

By comparing the autonomy, control and internal management of public organizations, this book show how New Public Management doctrines work out in three small European states with different politico-administrative regimes. Using survey data on 226 state agencies, hypotheses drawing on organization theory and neo-institutional schools are tested.

"This book is a major contribution to the literature on agencification...holds a place among the most important books to appear on agencification this decade...an important, convincing and valuable book."

- West European Politics
