Eight of the nine remaining chapters of this book are case studies of ac­

tual examples of policy research. The ninth chapter comments on these

cases. The case studies reflect some of the many different forms policy re­

search can assume, and they were selected to help illustrate the concepts

explored in Part One. They include various types of information needs,

different parts of the policy sequence, a variety of policy research clients

and stakeholders (including different levels of government), and so on.
