Anthropology of Policy
Perspectives on Governance and Power
Edited by Cris Shore, Susan Wright
Routledge – 1997 – 312 pages
Arguing that policy has become an increasingly central concept and instrument in the organisation of contemporary societies and that it now impinges on all areas of life so that it is virtually impossible to ignore or escape its influence, this book argues that the study of policy leads straight into issues at the heart of anthropology.
