Abstract:

Federal Agency Profiles covers 175-200 of the prominent organizations most studied by students. Entries follow a standard set of rubrics to facilitate comparison between agencies.

Arranged alphabetically, entries provide the following information: -- Addresses and key contacts-- Key facts-- Mission-- Organizational structure-- Major activities-- Budget-- History-- Current political issues-- Successes and failures-- Future directions-- Information resources-- Publications-- Further reading.

Entries include a "fast fact" feature designed to illuminate the effect of the agencies on individual citizens. When available and appropriate, entries also include significant photos, graphs or tables. Additional features include a glossary of political terms and acronyms found within the text, a chronology of events, a general index and an appendix on how a bill becomes a law.
