9780872893375: Rulemaking: How Government Agencies Write Law and Make Policy, 4th Edition

Rulemaking is the single most important function performed by government agencies. While Congress and the president provide the general framework for the governments mission, rulemaking fills in the details that define the law and delineate how each agency carries out its responsibilities. Cornelius Kerwin, and new co-author Scott Furlong, update this highly regarded text with new data, fresh analysis of interest groups participation in rulemaking, as well as coverage of the Obama administrations early actions, from executive orders and key personnel to agencies responses to changes. An invaluable and accessible guide to this intensely political process, Rulemaking contains the most current scholarship on a crucial yet understudied subject.

About the Author:

Cornelius M. Kerwin is currently the president of American University and a professor of public adminstration in American University's School of Public Affairs. Dr. Kerwin served as the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) for the 1998-1999 term. Additionally, he worked as a consultant for several organizations, including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Agriculture, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Scott R. Furlong is professor of political science and public affairs at the University of WisconsinGreen Bay. His areas of expertise are regulatory policy and interest group participation in the executive branch. Furlong has published articles in a number of journals including Public Administration Review, The Journal of Public Administration, Research and Theory, Administrative Studies Quarterly and Policy Studies Journal. He has been teaching the public policy course for over twelve years.

Review:

The strengths of Rulemaking are the comprehensive foundations and history of the rulemaking process, the engaging writing style, and the discussions of issues of management surrounding rulemaking. The authors give a balanced approach, and in fact, they do an excellent job of maintaining objectivity especially in discussions of congressional and presidential participation in rulemaking. In general, the book provides a good balance between description, example, and analysis in each chapter and it does a wonderful job of providing an overview of the impact of rulemaking on the policy process. --Kay Hofer, Texas State University at San Marcos

Rulemaking is the ideal single-source treatment of a complicated subject. Through readable prose and interesting examples, Kerwin and Furlong manage to highlight all of the relevant procedural and political facets of administrative lawmaking; they convey the nuances and practicalities of how rulemakers interact with their overseers in the political and judicial branches. Their discussion of overarching theory and current empirical research manages to be sophisticated without being stuffy. Whether used in its entirety as I have done for thousands of students in regulatory politics courses or more selectively, the professor can be sure that students will be well served! --Glenn Smith, University of California, San Diego
