Book Announcement B. Guy Peters

Pursuing Horizontal Management The Politics of Public Sector Coordination

From the first, specialization and coordination have presented governments with a conundrum: specialized program might be best for delivering one service to the public, but combining such programs for all public services inevitably produces costly redundancies and inefficiencies. In this long-awaited book, Guy Peters brings his expertise and extensive experience to bear on the problem of administrative and policy coordination. Through theory and four real-world case studies, he explores how—and whether—coordination can transform ordinary, flawed patterns of governing into more effective and efficient performance by the public sector.
This timely work arrives at a moment when coordination is proving especially challenging—as popular approaches to public administration emphasize breaking larger public organizations into smaller, single purpose programs, and as a push to involve the private sector in policy development and implementation has increased government segmentation. For insights into the workings—and limitations—of coordination, or horizontal management, Peters draws on extensive scholarship as well as his own consulting work with governments including Finland, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, and Mexico. He highlights practical successes, and failures, of horizontal management in case studies of Homeland Security in the US; child protection in the UK; policymaking in Finland; and the operations of the European Union. In the process, Peters evaluates a full tool chest of “instruments” that might be used to enhance coordination.
Combining theory and practice, and considering a wide range of public policy challenges, this book clearly and cogently presents the most comprehensive, in-depth, and detailed discussion available of policy coordination in the public sector—at a time when its insights are most urgently needed.

Academic co-editor of Policy & Politics journal

Policy & Politics has been one of the leading international journals in the field of public and social policy for over forty years. It spans the boundaries between theory and practice and links macro-scale political debates with micro-scale policy issues. Policy & Politics publishes articles that demonstrate rigour, originality and significance and that have relevance both within and beyond academe.

The Journal is enjoying an incredibly positive and vibrant period. Last year its Impact Factor (IF) ranking rose 73% to 1.302 (2013), placing it 13th out of 46 in ‘Public Administration’ and 33rd out of 156 journals in ‘Political Science’. We are looking to build on this success and aspire for the Journal to be in the top ten publications in the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) ranking for Public Administration.

The current Co-Editor, Professor Matthew Flinders, comes to the end of his three year term in January 2016 and we are looking for a replacement. The incoming Co-editor(s) would work alongside Sarah Ayres in stewarding the Journal through the next stage of its development. Of particular significance is the need for the incoming editor(s) to drive forward the internationalisation agenda in terms of external visibility and journal content. (We may consider appointing more than one co-editor).
