About the Author

Victor Bekkers, Menno Fenger and Peter Scholten, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands


'The field of policy studies has long been characterized by rather narrow empirical perspectives. In more recent years, however, there has been a flurry of theoretical orientations that have sought to reorient the field in ways that speak to contemporary policy realities. By focusing on the differences and intersections between four competing perspectives - rational, political, institutional, and cultural - Public Policy in Action offers a useful framework that helps to move the field forward.' -- Frank Fischer, Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin, Germany
