This text uses the policy process (problem identification - adoption and implementation - evaluation - policy succession) as a framework for examining all the major policymaking realms. Each chapter includes a case study of a major policy issue (e.g., the 1996 welfare reform; school choice), as well as a list of key concepts and questions for reflection and discussion.
