About the Book
The edition is a serious effort to examine the emerging trend of policy science in politics and role of theory within it. It is classified in ten chapters: emergence of policy science; problems and prospects of policy science; theory of policy analysis; foundation of public policy; policy inquiry and rational ideologies; institutional practices of policy orientation o political science; economic discourse of policy analysis; policy analysis and political judgment in urban politics; divergence between policy-makers and politicians; and ethical problems of imperfect knowledge in the policy science. I hope this book would stimulate researchers, professionals, politician, and policy makers in the area of humanistic scientific research.
