Abstract/Notes Throughout the twentieth century, there have been distinctive public policy eras.
Much demarcation between epochs arose because of tipping-point moments of
change in overarching theory/philosophy about societal values and conjecture
concerning how to instantiate such values with rules and regulation. In the
contemporary era, public policy development is visceral in nature and largely
undertaken based on consensus about what “feels” right. A reason for this change
in emphasis concerns the long-term failure of experts and decision makers to
deliver results for ordinary people; failure exacerbated by abrupt moments of
crises. This book explores aspects of how the new approach to public policy
creation influences management as a discipline. The first chapter is contextual. It
argues that – largely because of widespread skepticism about the worth of
specialists and theory and suspicion that expertise has been co-opted by moneyed
interests – public policy is no longer done as it once was.
