What People are saying about this

Christopher T. King
"Steve Wandner writes insightfully from his uniquely intimate vantage point inside the U.S. Department of Labor while also drawing on his extensive interactions with top researchers, program officials, congressional staff, the OMB, and the White House. He shares his play-by-play analysis of just how and where rigorous research succeeded in driving policy and, importantly, where it did not, and where it was suppressed or badly misused. "Solving the Reemployment Puzzle" should be read by every current�and would-be�researcher and policymaker. It�s a great read." --(Christopher T. King, Director, Ray Marshall Center for the Study of Human Resources, University of Texas at Austin)
Richard Nathan
"This is a rich, thoughtful, and highly readable story about real-life social experimentation�what was done, what was learned, and what was and wasn't used in government. It will be of great value to social scientists and employment policy experts. It should have a permanent place in the literature of applied social science." --(Richard Nathan, Director Emeritus, Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government, State University of New York at Albany )
