Synopsis

The public sector is going through a period of fundamental change. Service delivery, policy making and policy processes are being carried out by new actors and organisations with new interests, methods and discourses, related to the emergence of new forms of governance.

This timely book from bestselling author Stephen Ball and Carolina Junemann uses network analysis and interviews with key actors to address these changes, with a particular focus on education and the increasingly important role of new philanthropy. Critically engaging with the burgeoning literature on new governance, they present a new method for researching governance - network ethnography- which allows identification of the increasing influence of finance capital and education businesses in policy and public service delivery.

In a highly original and very topical analysis of the practical workings of the Third Way and the Big Society, the book will be useful to practicing social and education policy analysts and theorists and ideal supplementary reading for students and researchers of social and education policy.

Stephen J. Ball is Karl Mannheim Professor of Sociology of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London. He is a Fellow of the British Academy and author of a series of books on education policy and politics including The Education Debate. Carolina Junemann is a researcher and teacher at the Institute of Education, University of London. Her research interests focus on student dropout, social class and education policy.
