The study of governance has risen to prominence as a way of describing and explaining changes in our world. The SAGE Handbook of Governance presents an authoritative and innovative overview of this fascinating field, with particular emphasis on the significant new and emerging theoretical issues and policy innovations. The Handbook is divided into three parts. Part one explores the major theories influencing current thinking and shaping future research in the field of governance. Part two deals specifically with changing practices and policy innovations, including the changing role of the state, transnational and global governance, markets and networks, public management, and budgeting and finance. Part three explores the dilemmas of managing governance, including attempts to rethink democracy and citizenship as well as specific policy issues such as capacity building, regulation, and sustainable development.
This volume is an excellent resource for advanced students and researchers in political science, economics, geography, sociology, and public administration.
Mark Bevir is a Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley.

'While the verb "to govern" and the noun "government" are well established terms, "governance" is relatively new to social science vocabulary. What does "it" mean? Mark Bevir's Handbook of Governance is a welcomed contribution to a clearer understanding of this emerging seminal concept. Drawing on some of the best 21st century minds in this field, his Handbook is probative and exploratory, one that wrestles with the basic theory, modern practice, and central dilemmas of "governance". Readers are thus treated to profound and urgently needed insights into its meaning and significance today' - Richard Stillman, University of Colorado, Denver.
