The July/August issue of Public Administration Review carries my lengthy review of Beth Simone Noveck’s Wiki Government: How Technology Can Make Government Better, Democracy Stronger, and Citizens More Powerful (Brookings Institution Press, 2009).
Noveck is the U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer and Director—the person heading the Obama Administration’s Open Government Initiative.
In my review, I take issue with some of Noveck’s arguments. Yet, I ultimately judge the book “ranks among the most important books in public administration written in the past decade.” The review may be found here.
