Having started out as a new and alternative way of thinking about policy making and governing more broadly, governance is now established as a dominant paradigm in understanding national, subnational and global politics. The long-awaited second edition of this textbook takes into account the significant growth and proliferation of the field in recent years and offers a state of the art introduction to how governance is being theorised and studied today. Written by two leading political scientists, Governance, Politics and the State considers how societies are being, and can be, steered in a complex world where states must increasingly interact with and influence other actors and institutions to achieve results. It is a valuable book for all students of governance. New to this Edition: - A fully updated and revised set of chapters, including four new chapters - on multilevel governance, global governance, metagovernance and populism and governance. - A postscript on how to study governance

This revised and extended version of a classic is as incisive as ever in orienting readers to the major issues associated with the concept of governance. Adopting a state-centric perspective, the book brings to light why and how state-society interaction transforms the character of contemporary governing. * Christopher Ansell, University of California, Berkeley, USA * Impressive! This fully revised new edition of a classic book has retained its great narrative style and original views and insights, yet now also perceives governance with a stronger historical sensitivity as well as a keen eye for new development such as public participation and populism. A must read. * Thomas Schillemans, Utrecht University School of Governance, the Netherlands *
