Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Blame Game: Spin, Bureaucracy, and Self-Preservation in Government (Hardcover)
I am an admirer of Professor Hood's work. His broadcasts lectures, articles and books are uniformly good -- with the exception of this one.
It seems to me to have been brought out without any clear idea of what readership it wants to reach. It is too academic for the general reader and too general for the academic reader (and sometimes tritely so -- as in the case of some of the "diagrams"). He covered similar ground -- but admittedly less widely -- in The Art of the State and many of his other books.
