Democratic Politics and Policy Analysis
This book is designed to provide students with a solid theoretical and empirical understanding of the interactions between the practice of policy analysis and the norms of the American political process. The authors provide a new paradigm for looking at how people approach policy analysis, with a conceptual framework that allows the reader to distinguish among various types of policy contexts and anticipate the probate efficiency of various analysis techniques within those specific contexts. This book should be of interest to undergraduate/postgraduate students taking courses in public administration or political science.
