Bureaucracy and Democracy: Accountability and Performance
William T. Gormley
1 Jan 2012
Given the influence and impact of public bureaucracies in policy implementation, and the accountability they owe to the American public, their performance must be assessed in a systematic manner. With this new edition, the authors revisit their four key perspectives: bounded rationality; principal-agent theory; interest group mobilization; and network theory to help students develop an analytic framework for comprehensively evaluating bureaucratic performance.
