Review quote

The seminal statement on the subject. - Mordecai Lee, Public Voices ""Thoughtful, workmanlike.... The essays deal with field service areas and a real coordination of field activities. Here Fesler is a master and shows his skill most effectively."" - George Benson, American Political Science Review ""This is a book of great importance and usefulness. Fesler has brought to one of the most difficult problems of government an interpretation of administrative experience as a source of new insight into the general problem of government, as well as providing suggestions for the treatment of problems of organization and procedure."" - John M. Gaus, Annals of the American Academy of Political Science
