    One of the most prevailing myths within the social sciences is the difficulty of achieving reform. Governments are either unwilling to push for reform or if they are willing, they are unable to do so. This volume illustrates that reform can and does happen and therefore need not by mythologized. Through carefully selected case studies, the contributions to this volume illustrate reform in several policy sectors and countries, to include the smoking bans in Ireland, public housing in the Netherlands and asylum procedures in Germany. Designed to enhance our understanding of the reform process, this volume is highly suited to the fields of public administration and policy.
