about this item

This book presents a critique of dominant governance theories grounded in an understanding of existence as a static, discrete, mechanistic process, while also identifying the failures of theories that assume dynamic alternatives of either a radically collectivist or individualist nature. It demonstrates that each governance approach has unacceptable fatal flaws within a diverse global context.

Relationships between ontology and governance practices are established, drawing upon a wide range of social, political, and administrative theory. The authors then go on to develop a typology of four dominant approaches to governance, providing a systematic analysis of each. The book explains how the theories of governance are crafted using the ideal-type method and employs dialectical analysis to establish meanings and to thoroughly unpack and critique each governance ideal-type. The book then goes on to develop an alternative governance approach; one that is neither individualist nor collectivist, while still maintaining the dynamic character required for cultural processes that accommodate integrative change.
