has captured the politics of federal budgeting from the original lofty goals to the stark realities of today. Pete V. Domenici, . eISBN: 978-0-8157-7732-8. This book is about the politics and processes of federal budgeting and the policies that emerge from them. Many governmental activities combine process and politics, but budgeting differs because certain basic tasks must be completed each year. No matter how difficult the choices or how uncertain the outlook, the president must submit a budget and Congress must make appropriations.

The federal budget entails the active participation of the president, key advisers, and many members of Congress, the efforts of thousands of staff in the executive and legislative branches, and the attention of numerous interest groups. It consists of thousands of big and small decisions, complicated rules and procedures, and debate over the composition and amount of public revenue and spending. With so much at stake, it is not surprising that budgeting is often a difficult, conflict-laden process.

"[This book] does the near-impossible and provides a clearly written and objective primer that actually explains the budget process in lay terms.... This one should be on the desk of anyone who wants to follow the raging debates about appropriations, budgets, line-item vetoes, and constitutional amendments." The New York Times Book Review "An up-to-date, clear explanation of the federal budget. From the formulation of a federal agency's funding request to the final legislative appropriation, Schick has captured on paper the complex process. More importantly, he has captured the politics of federal budgeting from the original lofty goals to the stark realities of today." Senator Pete V. Domenici "Anyone who wants to understand federal budgeting should read this book.... Federal budgeting has complex rules and arcane terms, but Schick has a gift for explanations that are clear, entertaining, and insightful." Rep. Martin Olav Sabo An essential guide to the federal budget process, this book brings together three critical elements of budget strategy: the political tactics and relationships that determine budgetary success or failure; the policy objectives pursued through the budget's revenue and spending proposals; and the rules and procedures that govern congressional and presidential action on these proposals. Documents used in federal budgeting are highlighted to show how the process affects policy outcomes. Allen Schick is a visiting fellow in the Governmental Studies program at Brookings and professor of political science at George Mason University. His books on federal budgeting include The Capacity to Budget (Urban Institute, 1990) and Congress and Money (Urban Institute, 1980).

Great intro to the budget process. Its an easy read and clearly explains the gambit of the process.

This book analyzes political and economic aspects of U.S federal budget. We can learn U.S budget institutions and history by reading this book. Professor Schick especially focuses on political aspect and budget process. According to his opinion, politics means change and process means stability+incrementalism. I absolutely agree with his opinion because government budget has two features together. Also, we can learn the general budget cycle and government accounting by reading this book. If you are interested in macro-economic fiscal policy, you just need to read macro-economics textbook(Mankiw or Krugman)together. Good Luck.

This is a little outdated now, but the basics are all here and make it worth a read.

Book was in great shape, but I never even opened it for class because the professor was so good.

Dr. Schick's book is outstanding. If you use this book in the classroom or teach the congressional or federal budget process, you should also look at the Congressional Operations Poster.
One side of the poster covers the federal budget process, with a flowchart that is very useful when teaching about the federal or congressional budget process. (But don't take my word that the poster is useful - I have seen it hanging in federal agency offices in Washington, DC.) The publisher, TheCapitol.Net, has more information about the poster, and many useful links, on their web site: congressposter.com
Best bet is to buy Dr. Shick's book and the Congressional Operations Poster.
