Douglas E. Ashford joins a growing number of scholars who have questioned the behavioralist assumptions of much policy science. The essays in this volume show why policy analysis cannot be confined to prevailing methods of social science. Policy-making behavior involves historical, contextual, and philosophical factors that also raise critical questions about the concepts and theory of the discipline. Ashford asks difficult questions about the contextual, conjunctural, and unintentional circumstances that affect actual decision-making. His bridging essays summarize opposing viewpoints and conflicting interpretations to help form a new agenda for comparative policy analysis.
Sinopsis: Questioning the behaviouralist assumptions of contemporary policy science, this collection of essays shows why policy analysis cannot be confined to prevailing methods of social science. Policy-making behaviour is demonstrated to involve historical, contextual and philosophical factors.
