Format: Kindle Edition
The authors put a lot of hard work into arriving at the common sense conclusion that one side does not fit all in public policy. The book is mind opening not so much for its findings as for its methodology.

All the references are right in the text, rather than foot or end-noted. This decreases readability. This is not a novel, it is an academic treatise.
