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”.
