This book contains the academic presentations at a Symposium on Advancing Excellence and Public Trust in Government which focused on the role of transparency in restoring the public trust. There was certainly a very broad consensus at the Symposium that transparency in government is extremely desirable, needs to be improved, will bring reform and improvement to the public sector, and should make a major contribution to the restoration of the public trust in the United States.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Advancing Excellence and Public Trust in Government provides an excellent discussion of the major issues involved in the debate about transparency in government. It provides a sophisticated discussion of efforts to improve governmental transparency with a special emphasis on budgets and performance measures and covers a wide range of topics, presenting contrasting perspectives on transparency. This book is an outstanding contribution to academic scholarship. The issue of transparency is under represented in the current literature and this book covers valuable issues relating to transparency in government. -- John Sibley Butler, University of Texas at Austin
Readers looking for solutions to the lack of trust in government will find guidance in this slim volume. The essays consider the promises and pitfalls with increasing governmental transparency at all levels. -- Dave Rausch, Teel Bivins Professor of Political Science, West Texas A&M University
