About the Author

B. Guy Peters, Maurice Falk Professor of Government, University of Pittsburgh, US


'The book offers by far the most systematic and elaborate account of the importance of institutional theory in political science. It gives both researchers and practitioners a lot of ideas about how to analyze and conduct political-administrative decision-making processes, seen through institutional lenses.' -- Tom Christensen, University of Oslo, Norway and Renmin University of China
