Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Frisch, who teaches at East Carolina U. and is a former Treasury Department employee, studies the most common form of pork barrel spending in Congress: appropriations earmarks. This book identifies where congressional influence is most apparent in earmark spending, and analyzes the predominant theories of distributive spending using data on the seven most popular earmark programs. Frisch also criticizes the commonly held theory of rational choice spending, especially the electoral associations attached to it. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
