This book addresses the mismatch between the assumptions of planning professionals and the actual operations of the intergovernmental system.

Basing her work not only on empirical research but also years of personal experience, Christensen presents a new theory of the underlying structure and dynamics of the US intergovernmental system. It is designed to help planners and policy makers clarify the obstacles to effective action on behalf of the public good.

MEDIA REVIEWS

". . .successfully untangles the complicated intergovernmental system in the U.S. and suggests ways in which planners could take effective actions within the system on behalf of the public good. . .it is a must-read for planning students, practitioners, and policy makers."

-- Sandeep Kumar

"Christensen's book is an unpretensiously solid, well reasoned, and worthwhile addition to planning theory. Her astute, nuanced view of government is a welcome corrective to the planners' too common view of the 'public sector' as a simple, unitary entity. . ."

-- Scott Campbell
