FISCAL ADMINISTRATION is based on two principles: that students must clearly understand the details of where the money for public budgets comes from; and that, to learn public finance and budgeting, students must "run the numbers." John Mikesell--an authority on the revenue side of public finance--focuses on his area of specialty, giving students detailed instruction that will equip them to deal with the complex issues and calculations they will encounter in the field. In most chapters, Mikesell includes questions and exercises that require calculations to get specific answers, as well as "Cases for Discussion" and "Sidebars" that supplement the regular text with more in-depth treatment of key topics. This edition also includes the most recent federal budget information, as well as the latest federal government fiscal data.

"The exercises at the end of the chapters are very helpful by allowing the students to put into action ... the concepts and practices presented in the text. In addition, the cases present interesting extensions of the chapter topics."
"The text provides a foundation that enables students to read and understand the concepts that are discussed in journal articles and chapters of other books. ... The book's greatest strengths are its breadth of coverage and the ease with which a novice can understand the text. I do not see a weakness."
