It clearly shows that the inclusion of women in positions of power is no “quick fix” to reduced levels of corruption. The chapters give new insights on how social and political norms specify the room open for women to maneuver in society.’ – Lena Wängnerud, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 2022 304 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 582 4 £105.00 / $155.00 eBook • Elgaronline Governing the EU in an Age of Division Dalibor Rohac, American Enterprise Institute, US ‘Dalibor Rohac isn’t all misty-eyed when people talk about the European Union. Nor is he scornful, though, of the EU’s real accomplishments and possibilities. This is a rare, hard-headed, and balanced look at an important part of the current geopolitical landscape. Read and learn.’ – William Kristol, The Bulwark Nov 2022 174 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 872 6 £80.00 / $115.00 eBook • Elgaronline NewThinking in Political Economy series Globalisation, Policy and Shipping Fordism, Post-Fordism and the European Union Maritime Sector Evangelia Selkou, Project Manager, Athens, Greece and University of Plymouth, UK and Michael Roe, University of Plymouth, UK ‘A series of fundamental questions stemming from the multiplex nature of policy-making, nation-states, governance, individual choice, and globalisation have increased in importance. Turning to the shipping world, however, we concede that much of this nature is overlooked despite its significance for human life. This book, as a collective output of two great minds in the field, can continue to keep these issues in the minds of those who are responsible for policy-making as was done by its previous edition.’ – Dong-Wook Song, World Maritime University, Sweden 2022 272 pp Hardback 978 1 80392 023 8 £90.00 / $130.00 eBook • Elgaronline Transport Economics, Management and Policy series A Research Agenda for International Political Economy New Directions and Promising Paths Edited by David A.

Deese and his colleagues deliver an excellent survey of key emerging areas of research that can be expected to help shape IPE scholarship in coming years.’ – Benjamin J.

This book addresses this timely topic and offers a highly useful framework for understanding the performance challenges of PPPs. Covering empirical experiences across three continents, this well-structured book is indispensable reading for PPP researchers and practitioners alike.’ – Ole Helby Petersen, Roskilde University, Denmark Nov 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 919 4 £100.00 / $145.00 eBook • Elgaronline The Politics of the Public Encounter What Happens When Citizens Meet the State Edited by Peter Hupe, KU Leuven Public Governance Institute, Belgium ‘What happens when citizens meet the state? This excellent book provides a breadth of theoretically and empirically informed approaches to that question from leading scholars in the field. Drawing on insights from different kinds of frontline encounters, it is a reminder of why the street-level continues to be at the centre of public policy scholarship.’ – Catherine Needham, University of Birmingham, UK Nov 2022 c 398 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 932 3 £115.00 / $170.00 eBook • Elgaronline POLITICAL SCIENCE & PUBLIC POLICY NEW TITLES, OCT – DEC 2022
