To criticize bureaucracy has become a relatively easy exercize. But the post-bureaucratic defenders, by using themselves democratic values to propose alternative models of management, forget that bureaucracies have numerous similarities with democratic settings. Based on Tocquevillean views on the dynamics of democracy, and on the literature on "hybrid forms", this paper is an attempt to demonstrate and explain the power of bureaucracy in contemporary organizations.
