Reviews

"Staking Out the Terrain is a provocative and thoughtful work. ...It is, in fact, of potential value to anyone interested in public policy or organizational behavior." -- Journal of Policy Analysis and Management

"Using the methodologies of policy analysis, historical development, the case study, and budgetary analysis, the authors provide an insightful analysis of bureaucratic behavior that helps explain why the fragmented approach to environmental policy has persisted so long. Clarke and McCool analyze seven federal natural resource agencies to formulate a model of agency power that focuses on the ability of agencies to expand resources and jurisdiction for environmental control. Their conclusions challenge the views of those who decry the growth and fragmentation of the federal environmental bureaucracy as irrational." -- Policy Studies Journal
