'"Partnership" is a widely-used and confusing term in public management. This book pilots the reader expertly through the diverse ambitions for PPPs, and the contexts in which they have been used. It draws on the first-hand experience of politicians and managers in steering partnerships, combined with solid research and observation. A particular strength is the recognition of how PPPs are understood in various national settings, and the scope for international policy learning. The contributors write in a style which is both authoritative and accessible to students, policy-makers and professionals seeking to understand the complexities of partnership working.' - Francis Terry, London School of Economics, UK.
