  • Information


Given the influence of public bureaucracies in policymaking and implementation, Steven J.

Balla and William T. Gormley assess their performance using four key perspectives-bounded rationality, principal-agent theory, interest group mobilization, and network theory-to help students develop an analytic framework for evaluating bureaucratic accountability.

The new Fourth Edition provides a thorough review of bureaucracy during the Obama and Trump administrations, as well as new attention to state and local level examples and the role of bureaucratic values.
