"Hooray for Barry Bozeman! The case he makes for 'managing publicness' is brilliant and a must-read for everyone interested in advancing the common good in an age of economic individualism.... With this book, Bozeman joins the august ranks of the truly important contemporary moral philosophers." -- John M. Bryson, associate dean for research and centers, Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota
"Bozeman's analysis merits the attention of any serious scholar or policymaker concerned with the public interest, public goods, public policy, and public management, and with theory and practice pertaining to the roles of the governmental and nongovernmental institutions of a nation." -- Hal G. Rainey, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor, School of Public and International Affairs, The University of Georgia
