Bureaucracy: What Government Agencies Do and why They Do it
A leading expert explains what government bureaucracies do and why they behave the way they do."Wilson is a remarkably clear thinker. It is unlikely that anyone in the foreseeable future will master so much research about so many agencies at government level."--Tom Peters, "The Washingtonian"
"Wilson is our Weber and this is his "summa ."..a sprightly, irreverent, and profoundly serious inquiry as to how you make a nation work."--Daniel Patrick Moynihan, U.S. Senator
"The synthesis is shrewd and creative. The prose is uncommonly swift. The fresh insights are abundant and compelling."--Martha Derthick, University of Virginia
"A gold mine of interesting, even unique observations about bureaucratic government on all levels."--R. Cort Kirkwood, "Christian Science Monitor"
"Immediately takes its place as the indispensable one-volume guide to American national administration."--Aaron Wildavsky, "Los Angeles Times Book Review"
