'Putting into context' is a very common phrase - both in the social sciences and beyond. But what exactly do we mean by this, and how do we do it? In this book internationally leading scholars in public policy and management tackle these issues. They show how central ideas of context are to a range of theories and explanations and use an international range of case studies to exemplify context-based explanation. The book uncovers the complexity that lies behind an apparently simple notion, and offers a variety of approaches to that complexity. Context is indeed a missing link, which enables us to make sense of the vital relationship between the general and the particular. Context in Public Policy and Management will prove insightful to academics, as well as advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in government, public policy, public management, public administration and political science.
