Red tape, its origins, uses, and abuses by Herbert Kaufman( Book )

23 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Death, taxes and red tape. The trio no one can escape. That wry sense of reality colors Herbert Kaufman's classic study of red tape, that bureaucratic phenomenon that all of us have encountered in some form - from the tax form filled out annually to the time-consuming wait to renew a driver's licence ... Red Tape remains a definitive account of one of modern life's greatest, but absolutely necessary, scourges. Kaufman, a lifelong student of government and bureaucratic behavior, takes us on a unblinking tour of the dismal landscape of red tape: it's messy, it takes too long, it is out of date, it makes insane demands, it increases costs, it slows progress. But Kaufman also shows us another side. Red tape is generated by our government's response to the demands of both interest groups and ideas about what is best for the greater good of society. Red tape strives to protect us ... to guarantee a social safety net ... and to maintain due process of law. Kaufman posits that one person's red tape is another perason's protection"--Publisher's description

Administrative feedback; monitoring subordinates' behavior by Herbert Kaufman( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports on a study of administrative feedback from subordinates to leaders in nine federal bureaus. It describes the processes by which information about subordinates flows back to headquarters and assesses that information in an effort to find out whether leaders could, if they want to, learn what happens below. The findings indicate that increasing the volume of administrative feedback is unlikely to increase the leaders' knowledge of subordinate behavior; indeed, it may cause troublesome problems. To improve knowledge, the most promising remedies are those that would increase leaders' incentives to use what is already available to them. The result could be a significant redistribution of power in bureaucracies. (Author)
