Pressestimmen"Jensen's new book offers considerable insight and instruction. Jensen provides an intelligent dissection of the structural and historical effects of programmatic lawmaking, and, in the process, forces scholars of all persuasions to rethink the nature of entitlements." The Journal of Interdisciplany History "...adds significantly to our understanding of the early federal government." American Historical Review "Laura Jensen's account is rich at both substantive and methodological levels. As a matter of substance, Jensen persuasively recovers an early history for the federal administrative state." Law and History Review
