Product Description

Review

?Critical Policy Studies is, quite simply, a breath of fresh air. It is a timely intervention into the study of public policy in Canada that covers important substantive ground and raises critical questions about the boundaries of policy studies as a field. This book will excite undergraduate and graduate students and stimulate new approaches to the study of public policy in Canada.? ? Leah Vosko, editor of "Precarious Employment: Understanding Labour Market Insecurity in Canada" ?Critical Policy Studies conveys a clear sense that there is much anew and exciting in the field of policy analysis in Canada. It will occupy a significant place in the discipline, opening up new avenues for scholars and policy-makers, and offering a distinctive and enlightening perspective for political science students.? ? Alain No?l, editor of "Federalism and Labour Market Policy: Comparing Different Governance and Employment Strategies"

Critical Policy Studies conveys a clear sense that there is much anew and exciting in the field of policy analysis in Canada. It will occupy a significant place in the discipline, opening up new avenues for scholars and policy-makers, and offering a distinctive and enlightening perspective for political science students.

By P. Fafard on Aug. 10 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book that introduces the reader to new or at least less well known ways of thinking about public policy. The chapters cover a wide range of critical issues in Canadian and comparative public policy from diverse perspectives loosely assembled under the heading of critical policy studies.
