Abstract

This essay expresses some of the author's concerns regarding the ethos and direction of the "new institutionalism." While recognizing the latter's valuable insights and perspectives, he questions the wisdom of drawing a sharp line between the "old" and the "new," especially because doing so inhibits the contribution of institutional theory to major issues of bureaucracy and social policy.
