More Information
This path-breaking book considers the recent trend for governments to look increasingly to private sector finance, provided by private enterprises constructing and managing public infrastructure facilities in partnership with government bodies.

One outstanding feature of the book is that it brings together an academic assessment of this phenomenon with practitioner-based experience of organizing partnerships and advising government bodies in Australia, Canada, Continental Europe, Hong Kong and the UK. While the volume, as a whole, draws on this extensive experience of the market, there are also a number of specific case studies. Developments in the major advanced countries are covered, along with the potential for public private partnerships in developing countries and transition economies.

Combining practitioner knowledge and academic perspective and integrating engineering, economics and finance literature, Public Private Partnerships will be of great interest to economists, engineers, investment banks and government bodies.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book provides an in-depth overview of the PPP history and present evolvement. . . It is written by authors who combine wide practical expertise with a sound theoretical base. It will serve as a useful guide for everyone interested in public private partnership, and those involved in preparing and implementing PPPs.’
– Martin Grass, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture

‘This book provides an excellent insight into the operation and issues affecting PPPs and is highly recommended reading for academics, students, public sector agencies, private firms and professionals keen to develop their understanding of this increasingly important method of infrastructure procurement.’
– Public Infrastructure Bulletin

‘The boundaries between the public and private sector are the most important political issue of our time. This book is an invaluable guide to the issues in public private partnerships.’
