Agile Actors on Complex Terrains: Transformative Realism and Public Policy

Research output: Book/ReportBook

The book brings together complexity science, sociological theory and political economy and applies them to empirical areas of public policy. It shows how complexity science can illuminate the non-linear dynamics of the social world, but only if understood by reference to the unequal distribution of power and advantage.
