1998
Author:

H.K. Colebatch

Book Default Image

Examines how policy is created and how it is used.

H. K. Colebatch investigates policy as a practical concept-an idea that both politicians and outside observers use to make sense of public life and to participate effectively in it. Rather than describing particular sorts of policy, he analyzes how the policy process works by addressing the core questions: What do we mean by policy? What is it for? Who makes it?

Rather than describing particular sorts of policy, he analyzes how the policy process works by addressing the core questions: What do we mean by policy? What is it for? Who makes it? This book will appeal to people interested in policy’s relationship to how we are governed, as well as to those who are concerned about the environment, regional development, and social policy.
