Making local government work
Dool, l. van den
This book looks at the development of local government on a global scale: its history, practice, and future. Leon van den Dool explores local government from a practical standpoint, including human resource policy and financial management, offers a concise summary of modern public management theories, and links this theory with practice, providing case studies from countries at different stages of development. A valuable tool for students and scholars of management, "Making Local Government Work" is also an excellent overview for anyone interested in how such organizations really operate.
