Abstract

In Evidence-Based Policy Making in the Social Sciences: Methods that Matter, editors Gerry Stoker and Mark Evans showcase tools through which to generate evidence-based policy insights. Released amidst discussions of a ‘post-truth’ era, this book is recommended to students looking to broaden their understanding of methods for providing meaningful evidence for policy creation, but leaves open the question of how social scientists can better improve their relationship with policymakers, finds Barton Edgerton.
