For helping to clarify some of the ideas set out here, I would like to thank Kate Ascher, Brendan O'Leary and other lse colleagues, and students on my Graduate Seminar in Public Policy 1982–4. The paper was presented in various forms to the Scottish bsa Conference on Privatization (Edinburgh University, 9 March 1985) and to the Annual Conference of the Political Studies Association (University of Manchester, 18 April, 1985). I am grateful to a large number of people at both sessions (especially Desmond King, Nick Bosanquet, Stephen Young and Doug Pitt) for very helpful comments and suggestions.
