Le travail gouvernemental
In ail modem states there is an administration whose task is to run the country's affairs. How do governments work ? What are their organizatlonal Systems ? Their work methods ? The book, based on a course taught at the Paris Institut d'études politiques, is devoted mainly to France, but it also provides insights into foreign institutions. This is not only a précise and thorough description of the organs, the functions and the procédures of governemental work, but also a personal and systematic analysis of current problems : the difficultés of cohabitation, the relations between civil servants and politics, the search of a communication strategy.
