"Conceptually rich and empirically tempered, this book combines insights spanning different academic disciplines to offer up a new and exciting vantage point through which to theorise the messy relationship between space, place and policy making. The proposed vantage point - 'scalecraft' - is an essential toolkit to thinking through the dilemmas and problematics shaping policy translation and implementation both nationally and globally." Andrew Wilkins, University of East London
"Weaving together novel insights from critical geography, political discourse theory and interpretive policy analysis, Natalie Papanastasiou advances an innovative conceptualisation and reading of scalecraft, one that challenges policy analysts to take space seriously." Steven Griggs, De Montfort University
"This original contribution demonstrates an empirically grounded approach to what some critical social scientists have been calling for: a move beyond one-dimensionalism to consider the multiple ways sociospatial relations are constituted and organised..." Local Government Studies
