Editorial Reviews

?This bibliography pulls together more than 4,000 unannotated citations to monographs, scholarly articles, dissertations, and selected research reports dealing with the executive branch of the US federal government. Entries are drawn from a variety of fields including business, economics, political science, law, history, public administration, and the general social sciences. The aim of the bibliography is to include citations to materials relating to the history, development, organization, procedures, rulings, and policy of the cabinet-level departments. The first of 15 major chapters contains citations to materials relating to the executive branch as a whole, American public administration, and bureaucracy. The remaining chapters are devoted to the various executive departments: Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and the Postal Service. Government documents are not a part of this bibliography. Although the editors maintain, we attempted to include all books written about individual departments since 1900, ' most citations date from 1945 to the present. All citations are in English. Author and subject indexes. Well done, and appropriate for larger college and university libraries.?-Choice
