The book fills a gap in the traditional policy analysis coverage, which is usually heavily quantitative. There has been much in the journal literature in the past 15 years calling for more interpretive approaches to the study of public policy; Yanow has been in the middle of it.

Conducting Interpretive Policy Analysis
In this new and timely book in the Qualitative Research Methods series, author Dvora Yanow outlines a more interpretive approach to policy analysis. She begins by describing what interpretive approaches are, and what they can mean to policy analysis. Chapters on symbolic language, symbolic objects, and symbolic acts help shift the frame of reference from thinking about values as costs and benefits to thinking about them more as a set of meanings. Finally, the book concludes with a chapter on how to move from fieldwork to deskwork and textwork.
