Red Tape, Its Origins, Uses, and Abuses
Brookings Institution Press, 1977 - 100 pages
Most people talk about red tape as thought it were some kind of loathsome disease or the deliberate product of a group of evil conspirators or the result of bureaucratic stupidity and inertia. It is rarely discussed rationally, dispassionately, and analytically; most of us rage about it when it comes up. In this book, Kaufman attempts a detached examination of the subject to find out why something so universally detested flourishes so widely and enjoys such powers of endurance.

Review: Red Tape: Its Origins, Uses, and AbusesAvis d'utilisateur - Goodreads
Read this for my public administration course. Not bad for a political science book. Also, being that it's really the only book that gives an objective (not purely negative) perspective about the origins and uses of red tape in our government it's a good read. It's dated, but still relevant.
