Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A new edition of the undergraduate text combining the virtue of conciseness with a thorough course outline pertaining to public budgeting processes at each level of government. Gosling (political science, U. of Utah) overviews the function of public budgeting and sources of political conflict, outlines the theories of budgetary decision making and implementation, covers the purposes of budget control, and assesses the patterns of stability and change in recent budget discussions. This revision features an analysis of the federal budget deadlock between President Clinton and Congress. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
