"Bureaucracy" in the Introductory American Government Textbook.
Cigler, Beverly A.; Neiswender, Heidi L.
Public Administration Review, v51 n5 p442-50 Sep-Oct 1991
A survey of 18 college textbooks published between 1980 and 1991 showed that there are significant shortcomings in how public administration is presented. Many authors rely on narrow perspectives and popular myths and fail to cite many of the field's leading contributors or consider the critical issues facing the public service profession. (Author/JOW)
