    • Abstract:
      The article presents information on some quantitative indicators concerning the growth of policy analysis within the discipline of political science. The author consider three of the more promising theoretical trends in the discipline: the "political economy" approach, formal organizational theory, and new ways of measuring and conceptualizing policy failure. The author next discussed some research strategies which appear to have engaged the attention of political scientists doing policy analysis. These include attempts to focus on "tractable" problems, analysis of implementation of evaluations, policy termination and (briefly) comparative, cross-systematic research on post-industrial societies.
