The Companion provides a truly elaborate and learned account of almost every aspect of ASEAN that can be considered relevant in determining its shape in the modern era. It looks at issues of theory, identity, institution-building, democracy and governance, civil society, and security and economic development from within ASEAN. From outside of ASEAN, it examines the organization’s relationship with the powerful external actors and institutions that influence ASEAN’s development and mission. All of the chapters are well-written and argued and display an impressive depth of knowledge and analysis. Overall, this is one of the best and most rewarding overviews of ASEAN that I have encountered.’ – Shaun Narine, St. Thomas University, Canada May 2023 c 304 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 887 2 c £160.00 / c $235.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Companions to International Organisations series Handbook on Ministerial and Political Advisers Edited by Richard Shaw, Massey University, New Zealand ‘Fifty years ago they started coming on the scene as scattered and shadowy “assistants”. Now, ministerial and political advisers are ubiquitous and institutionalised in many democracies. Are they indispensable lubricants in executive government, or an annoying and unaccountable force for politicising the public service? This impressive Handbook is the go-to place for state-of-the-art research on who these “powers behind the throne” are, how they operate, and what influence they wield.’ – Paul ‘t Hart, Utrecht University and Scientific Council for Government Policy, the Netherlands May 2023 c 456 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 657 5 c £200.00 / c $290.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Handbooks in Public Administration and Management Research Handbook on Public Leadership Re-imagining Public Leadership in a Post-pandemic Paradigm Edited by Stephen Brookes, University of Manchester, UK ‘The single most important critical success factor I have encountered across policing and public sector service is leadership. This is borne out by the organisations that excel and those which fail. However we lead in a rapidly changing world where public services face multiple and overlapping crises, and leadership must evolve to adapt to this C21st context. The research book, edited by Stephen Brookes, is contemporary in its context and looks forward to what will succeed in the future as well as reflecting upon the lessons of the past. It will energise and provoke the thoughts of the most experienced leader as well as providing a deep well of knowledge for the newest leaders ambitious to do their best to make a positive difference to our society.’ – Andy Marsh, College of Policing, England and Wales Jun 2023 c 384 pp Hardback 978 1 78643 966 6 c £160.00 / c $230.00 eBook • Elgaronline Research Handbooks in Business and Management series
