Who Makes Public Policy?: The Struggle for Control between Congress and the Executive

By Robert S. Gilmour; Alexis A. Halley et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

In a book with eight authors, a complete list of acknowledgments would be unduly long. As the editors, we thank our coauthors for their major contributions in developing the framework of this study as well as the individual cases. Their drive to probe the nature and results of congressional intervention in program implementation, their willingness to use the case-analysis approach, and their investment of energy and commitment over a period of three years made this effort possible.

Panel members and their advisers participated in the selection of the cases and provided counsel on the reporting of the findings and interpretation of results. The panel members and their advisers included Thomas H. Boggs, Jr., Richard Boiling (deceased), Alan S. Boyd, Hale Champion, Roger Davidson, Martha Derthick, John N. Erlenborn, Joseph L. Fisher (deceased), Alton Frye, Harry S. Havens, Matthew Holden, Frank Horton, Melvin R.
