"I want to make it clear
in order to reveal the meaning of the bureaucratic ethos. Its use
has mainly been in and for non-democratic areas of society--a military
establishment, a corporation, an advertising agency, an administrative
division of government. It is in and for such bureaucratic organizations
that many social scientists have been invited to work, and the problems
with which they there concern themselves are the kinds of problems that
concern the more efficient members of such administrative machines"
