9780136137535: Bureaucracy and Red Tape

For basic text/supplement use in Bureaucracy, Public Administration, Organization Theory, Policy Implementation, and American Government courses.Demonstrating our need to think more deeply about our dissatisfactions with bureaucracy, this proactive text combines original explanations of bureaucratic red tape with prescription and case examples--challenging students to develop a deeper understanding of bureaucracy as a set of trade-offs among politics, accountability and efficiency. Fair-minded in approach, it distinguishes bureaucratic "normalities" from bureaucratic pathologies in the internal and inter-organizational management of organizations--helping students discern the difference between which rules and regulations are reasonable accountability or coordination mechanisms, and which, in fact, can be labeled "red tape".

From the Back Cover:

Focusing on red tape, bureaucratic control, and accountability, this insightful and proactive guide combines original explanations of bureaucratic red tape with prescription and case examples--challenging readers to move beyond surface responses to bureaucracy and develop a more meaningful understanding of it as a set of trade-offs among politics, accountability and efficiency. Offers original theories on the causes of red tape and bureaucratic pathology, and objectively seeks to distinguish bureaucratic "normalities" from bureaucratic pathologies, i.e., which rules and regulations are reasonable accountability or coordination mechanisms, and which are red tape. Presents "Bureaucratic Encounters"-- examples of day-to-day operations of bureaucracy that relate directly to specific points raised in each chapter-plus many case studies, including one that focuses on air emissions and the requirements of the Clear Air Act Amendments. Concludes with specific prescriptions for confronting red tape. For those in organizational management, government, political science, public administration, and policy making.
