Book reviews: Development, strategic management, multilevel finance
In the current issue of Governance, Robert Picciotto reviewsThe Politics of Evidence and Results in International Development by Rosalind Eyben, Irene Guijt, Chris Roche, and Cathy Shutt. This book “is reformist rather than revolutionary . . . It stays clear of big ideas. It engages positively with the evidence-based movement rather than directly challenging its fundamental tenets.” Read the review.
Tommaso Agasisti reviews Strategic Management in Public Services Organizations by Ewan Ferlie and Edoardo Ongaro. The book “can be an excellent manual for graduate students . . . [and] is also an an advanced contribution for scholars in the field.” Read the review.
Richard Allen reviews the Handbook of Multilevel Finance edited byEhtisham Ahmad and Giorgio Brosio. “Three stars out of five for this comprehensive volume of papers . . . that, despite some excellent chapters, falls somewhat short of expectations.” Read the review.
