Managing Presidential Objectives - Richard Rose

MacMillan, 1977, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed at the corners and the tail of the spine with a little loss to the tail. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding.

From the cover: “This book is intended to show how the institutions of the federal government create obstacles making it difficult, and often impossible, for the President to identify and choose objectives for bureaucrats nominally underneath him. Instead of looking up to the White House for direction, bureaucrats tend to look sideways to Congressional committees or to client interest groups. The President’s objectives are confined to things that do not require a large bureaucratic apparatus, and can be run from the White House (e.g. hot-line conversations With Russia, or requests for legislation to start new programmes).
