The study is devoted to the task of describing the political-administrative environment in which natural resources decision-making takes place; to surveying administrative theory pointing out desirable changes; to recommending action in the light of theory; and to pointing out the difficulties that will be encountered in effecting such changes. The general problems of governmental management are treated. Principles for improving water management within the federal arrangement are recommended. Attention is also focused upon the political-administrative environment for natural resources decision-making in Montana. The physical, economic, and cultural orientation of Montana is described. Management arrangements in other states and theoretical concepts in the area of administration are examined.
