Although the handbook's focus is on the formal evaluation of people-related policies, programs, and practices--but not the other "p's" of performance, products, personnel, and proposals, Shaw (social work, U. of York, UK) and two US evaluation specialists introduce evaluation as a natural human activity. An international advisory board reviewed 25 chapters that stress pluralism in definitions of, contemporary approaches to, purposes, roles, models, audiences for, and even histories of evaluation. For each approach, they present its rationale, a critique, and implications for practice with illustrative examples. They also discuss contextual social/political/ management/methodological issues, several evaluation domains, and new directions in the field. The dust jacket and cover list the title as The Sage Handbook of Evaluation. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
