Commemorating more than a decade of research on governance by Mark Bevir and R.A.W. Rhodes, this book is not a review of the past but a guide to how insights from the interpretive perspective can be used to advance the study of governance by researchers outside the interpretivist fold. Featuring contributors from major scholars in the field of governance and public policy, each author is tasked with reflecting upon interpretive concepts, utilizing selected aspects of the interpretivist approach and applying them in their own research. The authors debate the broad influence of the interpretive perspective in political science, including its impact on the study of governance and metagovernance, high politics, and policy making. The chapters link the most innovative contemporary perspective in political science with the latest empirical research on governance. Contributing towards setting the agenda for future research into governance, Interpreting Governance, High Politics and Public Policy is an excellent resource to the study of interpretative policy analysis.
