Review "[Radin] casts her experienced and perceptive eye across the landscape of recent attempts to make government more efficient and effective." -- Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory "A highly distinct study that looks at the problems with performance management that are typically glossed over, in a way that will grab students' and scholars' attention and help bring balance to any discussion of the subject." -- Burt S. Barnow, Associate Director for Research, Institute for Policy Studies, Johns Hopkins University "Beryl Radin has produced an important and timely challenge to the current orthodoxy in some political and academic circles about performance measurement. The 'performance movement', especially in the US and other 'anglo' countries, has all too often relied on simplistic, overly rational, value-free and linear assumptions about what performance means in a public service context. Dr. Radin effectively challenges all these assumptions and shows the paradoxes that underpin them. Most importantly, she offers an alternative vision which does not reject performance measurement out of hand, as some have, but instead seeks to re-found it in a democratic, pluralistic and accountable context. A well grounded and enjoyable 'must read' for anyone interested in this field." -- Colin Talbot, chair of Public Policy and Management, Manchester Business School, University of Manchester About the Author Beryl A. Radin is a member of the faculty at the Georgetown Public Policy Institute at Georgetown University. She was the recipient of the 2002 Donald Stone Outstanding Academic Award from the Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management of the American Society for Public Administration. Radin served as the president of the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management from 1995-96 and has been active in many professional organizations. She is a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration. Radin is the author of numerous articles, book chapters, and books, including Beyond Machiavelli: Policy Analysis Comes of Age (Georgetown University Press). In 1996-98, she served as a special advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Management and Budget in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where she was involved in performance measurement activities within that federal department..
