[The authors] seek the best of both worlds. By focusing on the contribution of policy theory to policy analysis, they both remove a temptation for scholars to speak only to themselves, and show how to produce practical lessons for problem solving. Paul Cairney, University of Stirling
A realist’s guide to management, the authors capture the complex life of organizations, providing not only an account of theories, but also an introduction to their practice with examples from everyday life and culture discussing the key themes and debates along the way.
