'This ambitious, well-written book will be a useful resource for excellent overview...a fine, readable introduction that presents its analysis in a straightforward manner free from ideological baggage.' -Congress The Presidency 'A refreshingly unorthodox narrative. Campbell [explains] in plain language how government grew. His stance is neither liberal nor conservative, but simply well-informed and reasonable.' -Walter Nugent, University of Notre Dame 'The canvas is large, but one comes away from the book with an understanding of what has happened, the factors contributing to these developments, and their consequences. Strongly recommended.' -Samuel McSeveney, Vanderbilt University 'Ballard Campbell has synthesized an amazing range of material: federal, state and even local studies, from history, political science, economics, and assorted other specialized studies. The product is a strikingly comprehensive and readable history of the rise of government in the USA. Even better, it provides a coherent explanation of why the state grew so large.' -Richard Jensen, University of Illinois-Chicago 'His overview (chapter 2) should be a compulsory assignment for any seminar on modern political culture...' -The Journal of American History 'Campbell's book is a marvelous multidisciplinary synthesis that builds on the findings of historians of national, state, and local government, along with those of economists and political scientists, to provide a coherent account of the rise of modern American governing structures.' -Journal of Interdisciplinary History 'The book should be useful in the classroom, even for freshmen classes in U.S. history and government.' -American Historical Review 'Readable, and refreshingly unorthodox, Campbell provides a coherent explanation of how and why government has become so large. His book deserves inclusion in any undergraduate bibliography covering the development of American government.' -Political Studies Association This engaging survey of the growth of government in America in the last century focuses on the evolution of public policy and its relationship to the constitutional and political structure of government at the federal, state, and local levels.
