Central government policies; Regional government policies
This work examines the relationship between central governments and local authorities in the UK as well as a range of European states and South Africa. Specifically, it is concerned with the changing regulatory frameworks through which central governments seek to exercise control and influence over the activities of local authorities in a variety of different countries. As such, the book considers the legal, administrative and financial frameworks within which local authorities operate as well as the influence of performance management systems on local authority autonomy.

'A valuable contribution; not only for what is said, but also for the way in which it brings together different perspectives and for the ideas and questions it sets running.' - Michael Hughes, University of Bimingham in Local Government Studies '...the collection should benefit interested researchers and students, and it offers useful historical and international context for practitioners.' - David O'Brien in Political Studies Review
