Challenging those who say that contemporary critical social theory is too ethereal to carry any practical payload, Forester (city and regional planning, Cornell U.) demonstrates its application both to public policy itself and to the analysis of it, by considering them both as political communicative practices amenable to the ideas of Jurgen Habermas. Paper edition (unseen), $14.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
