Abstract

Privatization is now a universal practice and is the result of a set of interrelated factors, all of which are explored in this two-volume collection. Following an introduction by the editors, the work concentrates on the public policy of privatization, and explores its dimensions by presenting key theoretical and empirical articles. The volumes are also interdisciplinary, bringing together articles informed by political science, economics and sociology.
