The fifth edition of this classic work identifies and analyses the implications of the shift toward administration of federal programs by third parties such as state and local governments, non-profit corporations, and private institutions. Seidman demonstrates how control of regulations, rather than structure, has become the centre of the struggle for position and power. Through this portrayal, Seidman shows how the courts have become primary actors in the administration process. Completely updated and revised to cover the Bush and Clinton administrations, this new edition is essential for understanding the changing nature of government and public administration today.show more
