      ANGELS IN AMERICA, PART TWO: PERESTROIKA “PERESTROIKA is not only a stunning resolution of the rending human drama of MILLENIUM APPROACHES, but also a true millennial work of art, uplifting, hugely comic and pantheistically religious in a very American style.” —Frank Rich, New York Times.   Free Online Library: An American Perestroika? by "Dar Al Hayat, International ed. (Beirut, Lebanon)"; News, opinion and commentary General interest Printer Frien, articles and books.

      Perestroika (Angels in America #2) by Tony Kushner It is a madmans undertaking, Angels in America. Its a work of staggering grandiosity and ambition, no doubt. To portray human drama intimately and without pretension; to examine the politics and morality at play in a cross-section of not-too-distant history; to create a cast of characters that are three-dimensional and complex; . Osborne and Gaebler argue that a revolutionary restructuring of the public sector is under way — an "American Perestroika." Like the Soviet version, they believe this one is being driven largely by politicians and bureaucrats who, under great fiscal pressure, are introducing market forces into monopolistic government enterprises.

      The contributors to the book—thoughtful political scientists who offer a variety of perspectives—set the Perestroika movement in historical and comparative contexts. They address many topics related to heart of the debate—a desire for tolerance of methodological diversity—and assess the changes that have come in the wake of Perestroika. Introduction: An American Perestroika 1. Catalytic Government: Steering Rather Than Rowing 2. Community-Owned Government: Empowering Rather Than Serving 3. Competitive Government: Injecting Competition into Service Delivery 4. Mission-Driven Government: Transforming Rule-Driven Organizations 5. Results-Oriented Government: Funding Outcomes, Not.
