The decentralization of national governments has led to a greater role for local governments; public administration and democrative representation are the new arena of local governments the world over. Focusing not only on countries from the former Soviet Union, but also on Israel, China, South Africa, and Egypt, the contributors to this volume present a truly global investigation of countries experiencing governmental transformation.

Local authorities are subject to a policy-related comparative performance assessment every 3 to 5. .In a local authority with sound public finances the top-level management may use a performance comparison to promote its fiscal performance.

The indicators that are used to measure and rank performance are defined by the state agency and the court of audit respectively. Taking a broad perspective, it is quite clear that the use of performance information has several benefits for local politicians and bureaucrats. The purpose is to show that – compared to other municipalities – local decision makers are doing a great job.

A concluding chapter describes Vladimir Putin's proposed reforms of local government and assesses their potential impact, concluding that the degree of independence of local governments will decrease as the national executive leadership consolidates its control over the hierarchy of administration. Upp (D. V. Schwartz, University of Toronto CHOICE). The essays in this volume start with the understanding that the project of post-Soviet municipal reform in Russia has failed.

Government has, however, contributed to these social problems in major degree. Charles Murray’s study of these phenomena in his book Losing Ground provides persuasive evidence that these social problems owe a great deal to mistaken and misdirected governmental policies. Indeed, the tragedy is that because government is doing so many things it ought not to be doing, it performs the functions it ought to be performing badly. The basic functions of government are to defend the nation against foreign enemies, to prevent coercion of some individuals by others within the country, to provide a means of deciding on our rules, and to adjudicate disputes.

The last major local government reform was carried out through the abolition of provincial government. With effect of 1 January, local government was vested in elected borough and county councils. The Counties Bill of 1876 created 63 counties out of the rural parts of the former provinces. Over the years, many new bodies were set up. Some of these bodies were multi-purpose, whilst others (for example harbour boards) were single-purpose.

Studies of ageism in Europe revealed that across the European Social Survey (ESS) countries, respondents felt more positively towards people aged over 70 than people in their 20s (Abrams et al. 2011). Since the literature on age discrimination pays less attention to the latter, this section digs deeper and discusses the role of macrostructural factors.
