Administrative Regulation: A Study in Representation of Interests

Excerpt

The writer wishes to make a belated public acknowledgment to the Social Science Research Council for creating the opportunity of a year's field investigation in 1937-38 and to the many persons, necessarily nameless here, who indicated their interest in the subject of inquiry by giving him so much of their time in conversation and interview.

Gratifying as it is to make acknowledgments of a personal character, it is, after all, primarily an honor to the person expressing them. It was my privilege to work for two years in the University of Chicago community under Professor Charles E. Merriam, whose influence is an ineffable part of the education of all members of his seminar and the denizens of Room 305. Professor Leonard D. White's sympathetic criticism and unflagging encouragement are directly responsible for the completion of this study, but my sense of warm gratitude and obligation to him goes far deeper than that. Finally, this book is an inadequate expression of my father's emphasis on the central importance of problems of administrative judgment involved in integrating "interests" with "expert" views of public policy.
