This Handbook on Strategic Public Management by Carsten Greve and Tamyko Ysa provides a resounding “yes!” to that question, and goes on to explain what this subject is, and – more significantly, why it is important, and how it can be taught! I am very glad it has been written since it shows the breadth of scholarship focused on this idea, along with the depth and precision of the analytic concepts associated with the larger idea. I recommend it heartily to those who wish to understand the internal logic and potential utility of this field, and to develop it further both in theory and in practice.’ – Mark Moore, Harvard University, US Apr 2023 c 324 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 718 6 £145.00 / $215.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Handbooks in Public Administration and Management Handbook on Governmentality Edited by William Walters, Carleton University, Canada and Martina Tazzioli, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK ‘Governmentality has become a ubiquitous term in social and political theory.

This impressive Handbook lays the basis for a new season in governmentality studies, exploring new geographical and conceptual frontiers.

The book is an eyeopener for practitioners and academics in sustainable transport as they can begin to learn how to detect and start to disentangle from car-dominated discourses and language.’ – Ralph Buehler, Virginia Tech, US Apr 2023 c 272 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 719 4 £105.00 / $150.00 eBook • Elgaronline NECTAR Series on Transportation and Communications Networks Research
