Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415178746, Paperback)

In the public sector at the moment resources are scarce - or at the very least finite and limited - how they are allocated is therefore of crucial importance.
This book analyses this process and examines the competing values that underlie the public service ethic, including the role of markets and quasi-markets, in the delivery of public services.
Topics discussed include:
* whether people should be denied the public services they need because public bodies are short of money
* what balance we should strike between markets and public organisations to provide public services
* whether the use of markets has gone too far and whether we need to return to a public service ethic

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:24:38 -0400)

The widespread restructuring and privatisation of UK public services has fundamentally changed the nature of our society. This book is a timely examination of all aspects of public sector management.
