In the July 2012 volume of Governance: An International Journal of Policy, Administration and Institutions, Jon Pierre describes Jon Power’s Fiducial Governance as “an exercise in constitutional
reform design”. Pierre congratulates Power on the concentrated, well-constructed book, writing:
The modest format of the book—it is only some 70 pages plus index and references—should not fool the reader into thinking that this is a quick read. Power writes with a high density, and his book offers more insights than many books twice the size of this monograph.
