Politicians, Bureaucrats and Leadership in Organizations is the first book-length study of the French regional agency DATAR-DIACT. At one level, it is a story of the interactions and infightingof political leaders and the bureaucrats as they develop an ambitious regional development policy from the Vichy wartime period to the present day. At anotherlevel, it sheds new light on a topic of importance to theoreticians and practitioners alike: political leadership in a bureaucracy. It shows how French political leaders exercise or not their constitutional and political powers, to control government organisation, appointments and funds, and to modify public policies, such as road-buildingor regionalisation, according to their own interests. Innovative and transferable methodological techniques demonstrate convincingly, chapter by chapter, the impact of political leaders on institutions. It is a study of France that can be applied to other political and administrative systems
