"The book, edited by Roger H. Davidson, founding director of the Governance Institute, is laid out in essay format and drawn predominantly from academics...Each essay provides essential information about a given institution, a wide assortment of data, interviews and first-hand observations to provide practical evidence for the author's judgments. From this, the authors then suggest specific institutional checkups that could be used to help measure the health of that branch...[T]hose who seriously care about the way the government operates would be well served to page through these essays." --Bryan O'Keefe, National Journal, National Journal, 12/4/2003 "WORKWAYS OF GOVERNANCE is worth reading for scholars of American institutions and others who are concerned about the decline of civic engagement, the morale of federal government employees, and the recruitment and retention of civil servants, elected officials, and White House staffers." --Karen M. Kedrowski, Winthrop University, Presidential Studies Quarterly, 9/1/2004
