Monograph

Brehm, John; & Gates, Scott (1997) Working, Shirking and Sabotage: Bureaucratic Response to a Democratic Public. : .

"This book is breathtaking in its use of models and techniques. . . . The approach developed by Brehm and Gates allows us to re-open empirical questions that have lain dormant for years." --Bryan D. Jones, University of Washington "This is a stimulating book. It proposes a refreshing perspective on bureaucrats, who are portrayed as committed and hard workers. It is a useful reminder that there is no necessary connection between rational choice and the political Right." --American Political Science Review

Examines who influences how federal, state, and local bureaucrats allocate their efforts.
