In many countries, the recent history of public policymaking, particularly planning, shows a distinct move away from supposedly "rational" approaches towards a reliance upon more pragmatic procedures. The move is partly a result of similar changing attitudes amongst academics. Despite this new conventional wisdom, some policy analysts warn against the dangers of dropping "rational" policymaking methodologies. The debate is of great importance, both for the practice and the theory of public policymaking, and revolves around the meanings and implications of the concept of "rationality". The chapters in this volume focus upon this concept and draw upon practical and theoretical experience to make a contribution to this debate.
