Summary
"Policy Bureaucracy examines what policy bureaucrats do and how they do it, the cues officials use to develop policy and how political and administrative leaders influence their work. The instructions to which these largely middle-ranking officials work - whether coming from ministers or top civil servants - are often very broad and leave much to personal interpretation. The analytical approach adopted in the book is derived from Alvin Gouldner's Patterns of Industrial Bureaucracy and his elaboration of Max Weber's notion that hierarchy and expertise place a fundamental tension at the heart of modern bureaucracies. In the UK this tension is handled by combining 'invited authority' with 'improvised expertise'. The book also explores other models of handling this tension in political systems in Europe and the USA."--BOOK JACKET
