9780072432008: Public Policy: Continuity & Change

This new text provides students with a broad survey of public policy theory and history, detailed in plain language. It focuses on distributive, redistributive, competitive regulatory, protective regulatory, and morality policies. It incorporates pluralists, elitists, state-centered, agenda-setting, problem definition, and social movement approaches into a model of policy regimes useful in explaining long-term policy stability and short bursts of policy change. The text covers ten substantive policy areas: social welfare, health care, civil rights, environmental protection, labor, competitive regulatory, fertility control, criminal justice, education, and economics, and provides extensive discussions about recent policy changes and contemporary policy debates.

From the Back Cover:

"Carter Wilson has written a superb introduction to American public policy. It is unique in its sound theoretical base and coverage of the historical development of major public policies in the United States. Of the many books I have used in the introductory policy course over the years, Carter's is the book that has generated the most favorable comments from students--and by an overwhelming margin." --Bryan D. Jones, University of Texas at Austin
