Feldman and Seibel - Chapter 05
The thesis of "institutional Darwinism" or "polycracy," which argues that
Hitler encouraged rival agencies with unclear jurisdictional boundaries to
compete for the implementation of key ideological tasks, has proved to be
one of the most insightful interpretations of the Nazi regime.1 Clearly it
would be misleading to depict bureaucratic wrangling over jurisdiction as
always leading to the swift implementation of the most extreme solution.
