It includes an overview of the schools of public policy, from its roots as a distinct profession, to the growth of professional graduate schools in the 1970s. It finally provides a personal perspective on the arrival of the Kennedy School of Government, which became widely recognized as the fourth among Harvard's major professional schools by 1989.
