The Craft of Governing
The Craft of Governing offers a tribute to the contribution of Patrick Weller to Australian political science, with chapters from leading political commentators including Michelle Grattan, Peter Shergold, Bob Jackson and James Walter. Contributors consider the role of the prime minister, approaches to studying executive government, the continuing significance of senior public servants and the nature of leadership in public bureaucracies.
The Craft of Governing is an invaluable resource for readers interested in approaches to studying politics and the development of political science as a discipline. The Craft of Governing will be launched at the APSA Annual Conference in Sydney later this month.
