"The Myth of Research-Based Policy and Practice." Martyn Hammersly. SAGE. March 2013.--- Martyn Hammersley‘s provocative text seeks to interrogate the complex relationship between research, policymaking and practice, against the background of the evidence-based practice movement. Addressing a series of probing questions, this book reflects on the challenge posed by the idea that social research can directly serve policymaking and practice. Jennifer Miller finds this a thought provoking read.
