    In an effort "to clarify what government agencies and their public administrators do and why," A-Z entries on American bureaucracy focus on events, topics, and personalities in public administration. More than 350 signed entries describe the functions, background, and importance of federal programs and agencies (e.g., Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Department of Agriculture); important laws (e.g., Clean Air Act); and public administration concepts and issues (e.g., Faith-based initiatives, Earned income tax credit, Eminent domain, Lobbying, Police power).
    Information differs depending on the type of entry. For instance, the entry on a governmental concept such as Progressive property tax includes several paragraphs explaining the concept and its use in local government as well as implications for the future use of this tax as a revenue source. Biographical entries provide both birth and, if relevant, death dates (years only) and a short profile that emphasizes the subject's impact on public administration. Biographical subjects include some presidents; social reformers and activists (Jane Addams, Mary Parker Follett); public administration authors (Frank Goodnow, Dwight Waldo); and behavioral scientists (Abraham Maslow, Max Weber).
