  • Budgeting and Governingby Aaron Wildavsky

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Aaron Wildavsky's greatest concern, as expressed in his writings, is how people manage to live together.

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Since the presidency of Lyndon Johnson between 1963 and 1968, there is much reason to believe that the executive office is in trouble.

  • Leadership in a Small Townby Aaron Wildavsky

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Of all the questions that might be asked about political life, it would be difficult to find one of greater interest than the ancient query: who rules over whom?

  • Risk and Cultureby Mary Douglas; Aaron Wildavsky

    University of California Press 1983; US$ 27.95

    Can we know the risks we face, now or in the future? No, we cannot; but yes, we must act as if we do. Some dangers are unknown; others are known, but not by us because no one person can know everything. Most people cannot be aware of most dangers at most times. Hence, no one can calculate precisely the total risk to be faced. How, then, do people decide... more...
