This book presents a much needed guide to interpretative techniques and methods for policy research. The author begins by describing what interpretative approaches are and what they can mean to policy analysis. The author shifts the frame of reference from thinking about values as costs and benefits to thinking about them more as a set of meanings. The book concludes with a chapter on how to move from "fieldwork to deskwork to textwork".
