In this comparison of two countries-Norway and the United States-the authors analyze similarities and differences in political-administrative systems, measuring the capacity to govern and the influence of structure and culture in each case. They provide a framework for a broader understanding of public bureaucracy, its importance in a given political system, and how it interacts with other institutions to govern.

In this book, Christensen and Peters manage to compare such different countries as Norway and the United States in an interesting and systematic way. By combining cultural and structural factors, they give new insight into the roles of the political-administrative systems in the two countries. -- Per Laegreid, University of Bergen ...should attract readerships beyond those primarily interested in Nordic politics. The authors deserve plaudits for the execution of their difficult enterprise. * Political Studies Review * This book is the first sistematic comparison of public administration in Norway and the United States. It is a must-read for scholars as well as graduate and advanced undergraduate students specializing in comparative public administration. * Governance * This book is a detailed, well-documented, and insightful study of the connection between political-administrative institutions and policy making in two stable democratic systems. It examines a variety of viewpoints and theories of governance in the light of facts about decision makers, patterns of influence, major issues, and national political traditions. It should be read by all serious students of comparative politics. -- William Safran, University of Colorado, Boulder The work would be excellent for graduate seminars in comparative politics-to teach complexity. -- Michael G. Roskin, Lycoming College
