Contemporary U.S. Tax Policy.
Contemporary U.S. Tax Policy, by C. Eugene Steuerle (The Urban
Institute Press, 2004), presents an insider's look at tax policy
based on a quarter-century of working with tax officials of all
political stripes. The author offers a detailed examination of the tax
policy battles that began in the early 1980s and continue through the
present administration. The work emphasizes how various events fit
together across recent decades, the role of economic factors in the
shift in the nation's fiscal and tax structure, how reform is
organized and the direction in which various forces are leading tax
policy. 332 pages; $24. Contact (877) 847-7377; www.uipress.org.
