“Ostrom . . . does a magnificent job of laying out the crucial elements of the classic works in the field. . . . Strongly recommended.” — Choice

“Ostrom, who dwells on the crisis of confidence of identity that pervades public administration, . . . calls for divided and different authorities to limit and control each other. A significant and timely contribution.” — Library Journal

“[Ostrom’s] argument remains . . . convincing, elegant, and increasingly relevant to real administrative problems. . . . The Intellectual Crisis in American Public Administration stands as an enduring contribution to the study of administrative theory and practice.” — American Review of Public Administration

“This is a stimulation book, clearly written, introducing an important controversy about the aims and structure of public administration.” — Royal Institute of Public Administration
