Summary
Reveals how the American bureaucracy delivers significant services directly to the people, how it has expanded in response to citizen demands for increased government services, and how bureaucrats sometimes face contradictory expectations that are difficult to satisfy. Case studies include FIMA's support for tornado victims in Maryland, government response to environmental concerns during the 60's and 70's, and child labor laws that prevented children under sixteen from becoming teenage umpires.
