Books about how America is governed have sometimes focused on the structure of government, on such matters as the organization of the executive, the Congress, the judiciary, and political parties. Other books have focused on the ideals of democracy and have attempted to measure how well or how badly the American government fulfilled those ideals. Still other books have cities, racial tensions, pollution, shortages in energy and other raw materials, inflation, unemployment, crime, drugs, the threats of a nuclear age. Such books have then asked whether the American government was capable of meeting these challenges. This book takes a somewhat different approach; it focuses on the FUNCTIONS that government performs.
