Meyer has undertaken a giant task in tracing changes in fiscal and financial concepts as they affect national budgeting. Writing about the budgetary process is seldom exciting, but Meyer provides a conceptual structure that keeps the reader involved. Occasionally, economic terms are used as if all readers should understand them, but many readers will not. Chapter 6, in which the author compiles numerous tables about budget receipts, outlays, loans, and the public debt, is the most useful. Undergraduate students should be able to comprehend these tables, making them useful for history, political science, and sociology, as well as economics, students. There is consistent effort throughout to present both liberal and conservative political perspectives. Senior college and graduate libraries may find this book useful, junior college and public libraries probably would not. -H. E. Albert, Clemson University
