Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Among the new class of inductees into the “Longman Classics in Political Science” Series, this Fifth Edition updates and revises Aaron Wildavsky's classic exposition of how federal budget decisions are made and how formal budget institutions and processes are interwoven with political dynamics.

 

 This text explains how the federal budget process has evolved and analyzes recent developments in key areas: entitlements, defense, deficit/surplus and reforms. Its critical and stimulating approach and clear, readable explanations make it essential reading for students of politics and public administration, as well as anyone trying to understand a decision-making process that affects virtually all Americans.

Book News Annotation:

Originally published in 1964, The Politics of the Budgetary Process "forever transformed the way political scientists have published the puzzle" of budgetary decision- making, according to U. of Wisconsin professor Donald F. Kettl (in the foreword for the new edition). It rejected traditional arguments based on efficiency or institutional processes, insisting that budgetary decisions are decisions about power. Following the organization of earlier editions it looks at the development of the U.S. federal budget, with separate chapters looking at entitlements, defense, and reform in greater depth than other issues.
