Review quote

'Good, basic introductions to key government departments are hard to come by. Richard Chapman's The Treasury in Public Policy-making is a short text designed to meet this need.'

Colin Thain, The British Journal of Politics and International Relations

"A humane and liberal case for ensuring that 'the ethos of public service' is not lost in a department increasingly concerned with 'accounting methods and the control of public expenditure' and that it is essential that more emphasis is placed on 'the implications of word public' in policy-making."

Colin Thain, The British Journal of Politics and International Relations
