Governance: An international journal of policy, administration and institutions

Book reviews: World Bank; Toxic Release Inventory; Public-private partnerships

In the current issue of Governance, Salvatore Schiavo-Campo reviews Hypocrisy Trap: The World Bank and the Poverty of Reform by Catherine Weaver.  He says it is a “beautifully written and cogently argued” assessment of the World Bank’s performance.  Read the review.

Julien Etienne of the London School of Economics provides an assessment of  Coming Clean: Information Disclosure and Environmental Performance by Michael E. Kraft, Mark Stephan and Troy Abel — a work of “rich empirical scholarship” on the impact of  U.S. Toxic Release Inventory. Read the review.

And Richard Allen of the World Bank looks at the International Handbook on Public-Private Partnerships, edited by Graeme Hodge, Carsten Greve and Anthony Boardman.  The volume “will be valuable to students of public policy and public finance as well as practitioners, government officials, and the growing PPP industry.”  Read the review.
