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
