From the Publisher:

Building upon the idea that public administration in the United States cannot be understood outside of a political and historical framework, this book focuses on the interaction between Constitutionally mandated institutions and the bureaucracy, and explores the tug-of-war between the legislature, the chief executive, courts, and states versus the agencies.

From the Back Cover:

Updated in a new 2nd edition, this book examines public administration from a normative perspective, and provides readers with an understanding of the "practice" of public administration. It combines historical, contextual, and theoretical perspectives that give readers a truly comprehensive overview of the discipline and focuses on the practical implications of public administration theory.
