This book in the QRM series is designed for a wide variety of research methods courses taught in various departments. It will be of most interest to those in Political Science and Public Administration departments, but will also be of interest to researchers in Sociology, Anthropology, Communication and Education departments, among others. The book will fill a gap in the traditional policy analysis coverage, which is usually heavily quantitative. It will also fill a gap in the QRM series in covering the discipline of political science, which is warming to qualitative methodologyslowly. There has been much in the journal literature in the past 15 years calling for more interpretive approaches to the study of public policy; Yanow has been in the middle of it. She is well published and has worked with Van Maanen in the past.
