About the Author:

Cornelius M. Kerwin is currently provost of American University and professor of public administration in American University's School of Public Affairs.

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
