The Visionary Realism of German Economics forms a collection of Erik S. Reinert’s essays bringing the more realistic German economic tradition into focus as an alternative to Anglo-Saxon neoclassical mainstream economics. Together the essays form a holistic theory explaining why economic development—by its very nature—is a very uneven process. Herein lie the important policy implications of the volume.

New Public Management as an administrative reform ideology as well as conceptual innovation has changed the outlook of public administration during the last ten years. Public administration and public administration reform should not only be concerned with the improvement of the efficiency and coherence, which play an important role in public administration, but also with political values like liberty, equity and security as well as legal values like the rule of the law. The modernization agenda of public administration has a rather internal focus, while the ultimate test for the modernization of public administration is the way in which governments are able to respond to changing social, cultural and economic conditions and the ‘wicked’ policy problems which result from them. This publication contains interesting contributions to the science and practice of public administration.

In this volume, leading European experts analyze the theoretical and practical facets of environmental cooperation in Europe. Chapters outline the roles of various policy-making bodies and institutions and discuss the contexts that they provide for international negotiation and implementation of agreements. A particularly strong role is delegated to the “Atlantic community,” which—given its vast economic and technical resources and relatively stable institutional structures—is at the forefront of efforts to achieve greater cooperation in European environmental matters. The domestic political dimension is also discussed and compared in four case studies (the Nordic countries, east-central Europe, southern Europe and Austria).The authors conclude that to be effective, European environmental policy must take into account the many variations in economic, technical, and institutional resources among countries, and the more resource-rich countries must accept a larger share of the burden of responsibility.
