The 6th edition of Public sector management proves again the value of a book which captures the dynamism of the public sector in Britain. It updates long-term trends and examines the major current developments which are shaping public services. With updated information, learning and discussion points, it will continue to prove a vital resource for students in understanding and explaining the public sector
Mark Exworthy
Royal Holloway, University of London

The sixth edition of Public Sector Management surely qualifies as a classic in the field. The book reproduces the admirable features of its predecessors, in particular the dissection and interpretation of public sector management, and is enhanced by the addition of relevant new chapters and by being contextualised in the turbulent 2010s. The book is strongly recommended for students of public management as well as academics and practitioners who want a well-conceived and clearly presented discussion of the subject
Professor John Halligan
University of Canberra

Norman Flynn's Public Sector Management is an excellent textbook that provides a thorough analysis of policy making in the public sector in the United Kingdom, along with a great deal of valuable descriptive information. Suitable for undergraduate and masters students in public policy, public administration or political science, Public Sector Management clearly describes how and why U.K. policies are chosen and implemented, as well as evaluates the consequences of such policies
