Editorial Reviews

Review


"Nancy Cartwright and Jeremy Hardie are to be complimented. In their new book, Evidence-Based Policy, the authors have attempted to address a serious problem in policy design... In the process, they do a number of things very well, including debunking the notion that randomized clinical trials are the gold standard for solving all problems in all situations... In addition, they spend a lot of time helping the reader understand why a particular approach to policy design may work well in one venue but not in another." --Health Affairs

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David Brown on August 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book swims strongly against the tide, arguing that we must think seriously about individual solutions to social problems rather than depending on RCTs. Randomized controlled trials do work, but their use can also often stifle examination of what might work better for the wider variety of individual cases where social workers also have to operate. A much needed reminder for an important debate.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not sure I agree with the other reviewer that "this books swims strongly against the tide," but I do think it is an important book and accessible. It should become a classic in the fields of public policy, public administration, and related fields or sub-fields.
