Practical Authority by Rebecca Neaera Abers Book PDF Summary

This book looks at what actors in complex policy environments actually do to get new institutions off the ground.

The book explores the interaction between their efforts to influence the design and passage of new legislation and the hard labor of creating the new water management organizations the laws called for.
