Review quote

"In contrast to many books of readings, this one provides a comprehensive overview and synthesis of the major studies conducted on its topic over the past quarter-century. It contains several classic studies, various important new reports, and some interesting recent perspectives as well. Odden has carefully selected and arranged the contributions, providing a valuable historical presentation of policy implementation. It is a landmark publication in the field and will become the key, comprehensive text on the topic." -- Richard M. Brandt, University of Virginia
