Masterful survey of rise and development of the administrative state from FDR until Clinton. The book draws on primary and secondary material to weave a solid narrative of the decline of parties and ascension of the bureaucracy. For those interested in the American Presidency, or American politics cal history this is s must read. The writing is engaging and the bibliography a summary of the best political writing from the Herbert Croly to Ted Lowi.
