Professor Gordillo presented this work several years ago, yet the current situation in which respect the parallel public administration in Argentina is still the same. Indeed, this review intends to shade some light on the subject of this book. As far as the objective targeted by the author, he suggests the existence of a parallel administration and proposes mechanisms to overcome it. His methods vary from sociology, anthropology and economy to administrative law and administrative sciences. Finally, his findings are related to the lack of public participation in the decision-making process within public administration.
