How to find, train, and retain talented individuals for the public service is the concern of this symposium. It applies the recent experience of government (both British and American) to the question of the types of personnel needed and the way in which institutions of higher learning may meet those needs. The book grew out of the Princeton Bicentennial Conference on University Education and the Public Service. Its contributors include such outstanding men as Sir James Grigg, Robert A Lovett, Rowland Egger, and James Forrestal. Their concern is not merely with the routine problems of personnel training, but with the relationship between higher education and the public service in a free society.

Originally published in 1975.
