Summary:
"Hamilton's Public Administration deals with Hamilton as both a founder of the American republic, steeped in the currents of political philosophy and science of his day, and as its chief administrative theorist and craftsman, deeply involved in establishing the early institutions and policies that would bring his interpretation of the written Constitution to life. Accordingly, this book addresses (1) the complex mix of classical and modern ideas which informed his vision of a modern commercial and administrative republic, (2) the administrative ideas, institutions and practices which flowed from that vision, and (3) the substantive policies he deemed essential to its realization. The analysis flows from immersion in his extant papers (reports, letters, pamphlets, and essays running to thirty-one volumes in total) and many thematic and biographical works on his life. It aims to provide a comprehensive explanation of his theoretical contributions, and a richly detailed account of his ideas and practices in historical context"-- Provided by publisher.
