?This is a marvelous collection of fourteen essays brilliantly organized around an introduction by all three editors and epilogue by Swatos. The problem of bureaucracy is its built-in tendencies to supplant democracy. The editors demonstrate Max Weber's considerable concern about this. Weber argued that socialism would not fare better than capitalism in tempering bureaucracy's antidemocratic characteristics. . . . This significant and timely collection will be appreciated by graduate students, academics, enlightenable bureaucrats, and defenders of democracy. It is clearly written, high-level scholarship, with extensive notes and bibliography to direct the reader back to Weber and forward to current supporting literature.?-Contemporary Sociology "This is a marvelous collection of fourteen essays brilliantly organized around an introduction by all three editors and epilogue by Swatos.
