Additional Book Details

This book offers a powerful new approach to policy studies. Drawing on recent perspectives from social constructionism, discourse analysis, the sociology of social problems and feminism, Carol Bacchi develops a step-by-step analytical tool for deconstructing policy problems. Her `What′s the Problem?′ approach encourages students to reflect critically upon the ways in which policy problems get constructed within policy debates and policy proposals.
