The author discusses the inducements to public life and describes the type of personnel responsible for the public service, analyzes relationships in the various branches of the government, and presents information concerning social and educational backgrounds. Consideration is given to the permanence of appointments to the service, the increase in influence and power of the public service, and the attitude toward bureaucracy and the permanent brain trust.
