Format: Paperback
I was recently cleaning out some old files and found my original hand-written notes from the first time I read this book. (I guess I was still a poor student and could not afford to own the book-must have borrowed it from a library.) One of the first notations I put was about why government is better at providing government services (like building a bridge) than legislating behavior. Well, I'm ordering the book so I can re-read it now that I'm older and wiser (ha ha) and can afford to own the book.

And I was sad to read on Wikipedia that Wildavsky died young--I would have loved to see what he would have been writing about politics in the new century. My suspicion is that when I reread this book, I might find some timeless wisdom.

It is great for student who studying in Public Administration, especially Policy Analysis. But it is hard to read or interpreting for me like a non-native English speaker because Wildavsky often was used the words which there are not available in the dictionary. So it is hard to understand the contents, too.

This is one time that I was grateful to get what I paid for. It was advertised as "like new" and it was "like new." The speed of handling was good and it was just what I needed to complete my dissertation literature search.

Thanks!
