The varying opinions and viewpoints presented in The Evaluation of Social Programs offer a lively debate over the uses of evaluation research and its practical applications in a multitude of settings -- a debate which has serious and far-reaching implications for social scientists, government policy-makers, and all other 'producers' and 'consumers' of applied social research.

`It adds up to a unique insight into the views of the elite of American evaluators and their relation with those who use their services. Although 500 pages long it is never boring, rarely obvious and always realistic. It is worth its high cost to both customers and contractors.' -- Journal of Social Policy, Vol 7 No 2, April 1978
