- Author: Karen S. Christensen
This book addresses the mismatch between the assumptions of planning professionals and the actual operations of the intergovernmental system.
Basing her work not only on empirical research but also years of personal experience, Christensen presents a new theory of the underlying structure and dynamics of the US intergovernmental system. It is designed to help planners and policy makers clarify the obstacles to effective action on behalf of the public good.
