Updated annually since 1975, this guide to U.S. government organizations has expanded by nearly 200 pages since 2008. Dziobek (Issues in Juvenile Delinquency) divides content into 19 alphabetically organized categories, from "Agriculture" to "U.S. Congress." Each paragraph-long entry profiles each organization's mission and offers contact directives. Two appendixes offer detailed information on committees of the 111th Congress, foreign embassies, and government organizations outside the Beltway. This substantial and user-friendly guide remains a vital resource for navigating Washington's intricate bureaucratic web.
