Large Forces: What's Missing In Public Administrat&hellip by Alasdair S. Roberts
A useful corrective to the 'received wisdom' on the history of US public administration academia. Roberts critique is persuasive in that context, but has much less force with regard to the European tradition, which has always been much more context sensitive (although not always).

A rather bigger issue is how poor the global public administration academic community has been at addressing the really "large forces" driving real world-wide change in PA - e.g. PA in the transitional states, failed states, emerging states, the BRICs, etc. Instead PA studies have remained myopically fixated with (relatively) small changes in western PA systems.
SuperBox Trunk Luggage - Black - One Size by Superbox
1.0 out of 5 stars Poor build quality, 25 Dec 2013
The box is made of rather flexible plastic, which means the lid and side walls don't line up easily especially around the latch area. Only one of the latches on the one I received works properly. I wanted it for the back of Landrover and regular use, but it's not really up to that. If it was so big I'd send it back.

The only slight 'problem' with these are they're so small its easy to forget where you've put them. In my case i left it in a pair of trousers that went thru the washing machine and dryer and came out intact and fully functional. Amazed.
