From the Publisher"This book stands by itself in solving the puzzle of why governmental agencies and departments invest in research if they don't use it? I am particularly taken by Boswell's ability to bring fresh evidence and an original organizational-institutionalist framework in the fields of policy analysis and knowledge utilization. By doing so, she goes several steps beyond the Weberian and Foucaldian accounts that currently dominate the scene."
Claudio Radaelli, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Centre for European Governance, University of Exeter
"In a highly original study, Boswell applies a general theory of the use of knowledge in policy making to great effect to elucidate national differences in immigration policy."
Gary P. Freeman, Professor and Chair of Government, University of Texas at Austin
