Pressestimmen"The professional quality of Goldsmith's and Eggers' work is easily measured by the knowledgeable integration of the leading literature into their analysis and their refreshing humility in crediting superior authorities for vital knowledge and insights." --Chester A. Newland, Public Administration Review "...practical guide, based on real-life examples from dozens of pioneering government agencies... accessible and well-researched book... But it is the second half of the book, which focuses on the tools and insights needed to create and manage successful networks, that is must-read material for reform-minded Democrates." --Marc Porter Magee, Director of the Center for Civic Enterprise, Progressive Policy Institute, Blueprint Magazine, 12/13/2004 "Governing by Network is largely a how-to handbook for those considering networking within and outside government organizations." --James McNiven, Dalhousie University, Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences "The definitive book on managing government in the networked age." --Anthony A. Williams, Mayor of Washington, D.C. "Goldsmith and Eggers offer a penetrating and insightful treatment of how to make the new collaborative and networked approach to government actually work. We are in the process of rewriting the rules of public management, and this book is a major contribution." --Michael E. Porter, Harvard Business School "I would...recommend a readthrough for managers embarking or planning networks. The book is a good read and formatted for picking up good pointers." --Kenneth D. Mitchell, The Public Manager "Governing by Network is especially recommended for political leaders, political science teachers, political science students, and school library collections for its invaluable contribution to observing dramatic shifts in leadership and day-to-day practice requirements." --Able Greenspan, Reviewer's Bookwatch, 3/1/2005 "The reader will find that there are two books included within this well-written and well-organized volume: The first is a superb handbook about how to manage in a complex environment confronting today's public managers; the second is a collection of the usual critiques of contemporary government administration...Goldsmith and Eggers's Governing by Network makes an important contribution to the literature of public management and helps build the base of knowledge available to network managers. It provides guidance on how to form networks, how to select network partners, and how to operate networks productively." --Steven Cohen, Director of MPA Program in Environmental Science and Policy, Columbia University, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management "Using examples from both inside and outside the United States, the authors help the reader understand the attributes of successful and unsuccessful networks and provide lessons learned for government managers who are facing or will soon face the realities of governing by network...The recommendations in this book provide timely and useful advice on how to manage this emerging paradigm of government management." --Najla Mamou, GFOA's Research and Consulting Centre, Government Finance Review
