About the Author

B. Guy Peters is Maurice Falk Professor of Government at the University of Pittsburgh, USA and Distinguished Professor of Comparative Governance at Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany. He is the author of over seventy books, including The Future of Governing: Four Emerging Models, also from Kansas.


Guy Peters gives us a comprehensive inside view of the Holy Grail of Coordination. In this book we benefit from his vast international experience, his capacity to go to the essence of horizontal management, and this critical view of coordination as part of a problem but also as part of a solution.--Geert Bouckaert, President of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences

Coordination has held 'keyword' status in administrative studies for over a century (at least), but few have tackled it with the thoroughness and insight that B. Guy Peters does here. What Peters brings to this effort is not merely his well known capacity to frame the concept and associated issues, but a depth and breadth of comparative knowledge second to none. This analysis will set the discussion for years to come.--Mel Dubnick, coeditor of Encyclopedia of Public Administration and Public Policy
