    John Rohr's concept of "regime values" marks out a distinctive approach to regime analysis in contemporary governance. Very few commentators, however, have recovered the foundations of Rohr's regime values in his early work as a political scientist, particularly in his largely ignored first book called Prophets Without Honor. My aim is to recover those foundations through an examination of the emergence of the type of regime analysis in that original book, which reveals much of the formative political theory shaping Rohr's subsequent work in the United States and comparative public administration.
