about

Challenging the widely held notion that there is a clear boundary separating the public and private sector, The Emergence of the Business State argues that the public sector contains a group of federally established corporations that mirror the structures and processes of the private sector. Calling this group "the Business State," the book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the various types of federal corporations involved and assesses the degree to which their structure promotes responsiveness to executive direction, congressional concerns, and the public.

Editorial Reviews

?The US government employs numerous organizational structures to attain its administrative objectives. Perhaps the least understood and studied are the federally created corporations. Because of the size and scope of these organizations, the author refers to them as the Business State.' ... Leazes supports the need for criteria to determine to whom and by which methods these federal corporations will be held accountable. This book addresses the behavior of a little-studied aspect of public administration in a clear, concise manner and should be available for graduate students in both public administration and political science.?-Choice
