Summary

Summary

The Narcs' Gamedraws on Peter K. Manning's extensive field experience (episodes of enforcement practice, raids, interrogations, investigations, surveillances, and planning sessions), records analysis, and interviews gathered in two Southeastern drug enforcement units to strip away the rhetoric, self-serving organizational myths, and conventional wisdom that surround drug law enforcement. The Narcs' Gamewill interest professionals and students in criminal justice, public administration, management, and organization theory, as well as sociologists studying the various strains of deviance (both official and unofficial) and social scientists generally involved in the study of work behavior, professionalization, and bureaucracy.
