In the Politics of Budget Control Professor Marini traces the history and growth of centralized government administration in the United States. However, careful readers will discern that the most important point Marini makes is that the growth of the administrative state is directly attributable to a change in the American mind from the natural rights philosophy of the founding generation to the Hegelian philosophy of history brought about by the American progressive movement. The question this book forces the careful reader to ponder is this: If the American Consitutional founders were primarily concerned with preventing tyranny, what is the goal of the Administrative state? This book is a must read for students of public policy and public administration looking to move beyond technocratic jargon about the budgetary process.
