Summary
"In this first full study of the Bureau of Efficiency, Mordecai Lee offers both a chronological history of the agency and a thematic treatment of the structure, staffing, and work processes of the bureau; its substantive activities; and its effects on the development of both the executive and the legislative branches. Though it may be difficult today to imagine a time when the president was not seen as the "boss" of federal departments and agencies, not until the establishment of the Bureau of Efficiency did presidents begin assuming power to direct cabinet departments and other non-cabinet agencies."--Jacket
