In recent years numerous bills have been introduced in Congress to establish a major study effort patterned after the two Hoover Commissions of some thirty years ago. The continuing interest in creating a "new Hoover Commission" has prompted questions about the earlier efforts to restructure national government. This book provides the first detailed analysis of the Hoover Commissions and examines their relevance to recent attempts to initiate government reorganization.
