Trajectories of Administrative Change in Italy, France, Greece, Portugal and Spain

This timely book fills the gap by investigating the dynamics of contemporary public management reform in five European countries that gave shape to the Napoleonic administrative tradition – France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain.
