"It is evident throughout the four volumes that the comparative perspective is producing the kinds of intellectual capital that may be of unique value in policy formulation and design. Lesson drawing is increasingly appropriate in an era of worldwide reinventing of governance. Through the publication of this series, and through papers accepted for publication in future volumes of the JCPA, the journal and the Classics of Comparative Policy Analysis will continue to be a pilot light for imaginative and pathbreaking research that sustains the momentum of the development of comparative policy studies."Laurence E. Lynn, Jr., Sydney Stein, Jr. Professor of Pubic Management Emeritus, The University of Chicago, USA"Merriam Webster's definition of "classic" provides the reader of the Classics of Comparative Policy Analysis Series with a challenging situation. The terms used in the definition are traditional, enduring, classical, authentic, authoritative and typical. This series meets all these definitions. But, as the pages of the four volumes unfold, it also offers a sense of the relevance in responding to the turbulence of the world in which we live as well as of the future potential of this complex and ever-changing field."Beryl A. Radin, Georgetown University, Washington DC., Former President of the Association of Public Policy and Management (APPAM)
