They spend vast amounts of money, but to whom are they accountable? Is the Government's power of patronage excessive? Are non-elected quangos increasingly replacing elected local government bodies and, if so, what are the implications for democracy? This book answers questions about the nature of quangos and asks whether their growth has got out of control. The essays provide a unique blend of perspectives: for the Government, David Hunt defends what he calls 'worthwhile bodies', while both practitioners and academics come up with often provocative alternatives. This book is intended for academics and students concerned with British politics and British public administration, the informed general reader interested in the quango debate.
