Book reviews: Ghana’s oil, and new perspectives on public service

In the current issue of Governance, Franklin Obeng-Odoom reviews Governance of the Petroleum Sector in an Emerging Developing Economy, edited by Kwaku Appiah-Adu.  The book “provides a one-stop shop account of some of the key issues relating to the governance of Ghana’s young oil industry.”  Read the review.

And Sarah Holsen reviews New Perspectives on Public Services: Places and Technology by Christopher Pollitt.  “Pollitt’s goal,” says Holsen, “is to explore how, in the face of technological change, the provision of public services shapes the places in which they are located, how the characteristics of places influences how services are provided, and how the location of government and its services impact the landscape of interaction between government and citizen.” Read the review.
