Description

Institutions, individuals, and issues are the key ingredients of the process known as public policy making. Yet it is their interaction that makes the public policy making process so challenging to appreciate. Public Policy Making: Process and Principles explains the topic in terms of the policy making framework and dynamic behavior in the context of continuous pressures, conflicting values, and competing political objectives. By providing a rich, understandable explanation of the policy making framework, the author helps students identify the numerous pressure points of the policy making process and understand policy outcomes. This revised edition is rich with real world examples. Each chapter includes stimulating questions for further thought as well as suggested readings.show more
