I think this was a somewhat predictable book without any surprising insights. If some policy analysts are still naive enough to believe that they exercise objective judgment, they might need to be corrected by this book. But it seemed like an obvious point to me, and although he discusses several aspects of policy theory, the author couldn't really carry his analysis much beyond that first conclusion.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300052596, Paperback)

Challenges the common assumption that policy analysts engage in a purely objective technical assessment of policy alternatives. This book argues that what analysts really do is produce policy arguments that are based on value judgements and are used by policymakers in the course of public debate.
