Social Science and Institutional Change.
Mayer, Robert R.
With the growth of the social sciences, there has been increasing interest in use of their products to shed light on, and solve, some of the pressing social problems of our society. This monograph, the first in a series of studies on social change, reports on an analysis of applications of social change theory and research to programs of institutional change. It includes a state-of-the-arts literature, review literature, both scientific and policy-oriented, and a study of important questions raised by this literature. Finally, it offers a proposal to bridge the gap between the social sciences and public policymaking. (Author/BMW)
