Product Description

Review

‘An academic work that will be prized as a practical guide by both politicians and government executives.’ (Harvey Schachter)

Review

Off and Running is destined to be an important work in the field of public administration because David Zussman has combined his ‘real world’ experience in the actual planning and implementation of transitions with his conceptual and analytical understanding of government. His extensive use of real-world materials – strategic memoranda and policy agendas – all prepared in real time for real clients – prime ministers, ministers, and senior officials – makes it an especially good read. The result is an insightful, informative, and engaging book that provides the reader with a front seat for the premiere viewing of a feature length story of government transition.”
(David A. Good, Professor, School of Public Administration, University of Victoria)
