Summary

This book shows how intergovernmental agents—elected officials, public and private managers, and private sector leaders—have cooperated to solve human-service problems in six metropolitan areas. Many social issues facing communities have proved to be beyond the responsibility of any single office. Agranoff explores the emerging concept of intergovernmental management and the developing practice of public officials’ working together at the margins between their governments. He describes the structure and operation of formal bodies created for the purpose of problem resolution. These studies also demonstrate the vital importance of undramatic day-to-day affairs in inter-governmental management.

Robert J. Agranoff is a Professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University, Bloomington, where he chairs the Faculty of Policy and Administration.
