The very meanings of terms such as poverty, unemployment, and inequality, as well as the data about them, have been shaped in inquiries undertaken either by or for the states. Through a comparative study of the United States and Britain, this book addresses the historical development of the knowledge base upon which the public policies of the democratic state depend. The book stretches from the Enlightement origins of the impulse to base legislation on scientific knowledge to the twentieth-century development of specialized institutions and professions engaged in social investigation and public policymaking. It probes investigators' biases and omissions as well as their strengths as factors shaping social learning, and ponders the impact on social investigation and social policy today of relativism, antistatism, devolution and privatization as these currents have developed in both societies since the 1970s.
