In presenting a systematic concept of bureaucracy, the authors have made an analysis which involves, among other matters, the question of the supposed antithesis between bureaucracy and responsible government. The particular bureaucracy analyzed is that of Switzerland, consideration being given to matters of internal organization, personnel, and the explanation and extent of the syndicalist movement in the Swiss public service. The volume presents a real basis upon which comparative analysis must rest. It will be found unusually valuable by teachers of political science and students of European political institutions.
