Originally published in 2001. Drawing together a broad range of material on Partnership Governance, this volume provides an invaluable contribution to a fast-growing area of political science. Powerful syntheses and a robust analytical framework accompany three empirical case studies focusing on how the transition from government to governance in Northern Ireland is being superimposed on the deep historical divisions that still exist. Political scientists, geographers, government and society and local development specialists will find this text striking in both its substance and lucid style. The text will also be of interest to public policy officials relying on public partnerships as a means of tackling social, economic and political problems.
