This book calls for studies of policy and public administration to engage more directly with political geography. It demonstrates the value of doing so by introducing a new understanding of scale in the study of policy and public administration. It uses the burgeoning literature on scale in political geography to identify a pressing need to integrate a more critical approach to scale in studies of policy. This integration involves moving away from treating scale as an objective, measurable category of the social world to recognizing that scales have subjective meanings which are crucial to the politics of policymaking.
