9780130976390: Public Policy Analysis: An Introduction (3rd Edition)

For courses in Policy Analysis. This text is a problem-oriented, integrated, multidisciplinary synthesis of concepts and methods of public policy analysis. The multidisciplinary synthesis is achieved by means of an information processing approach that views policy analysis as a process of problem solving through the effective production, transformation, and critique of policy-relevant information. The text draws from political science, public administration, economics, decision analysis, and social and political theory to achieve the only integrated, multidisciplinary text on policy analysis currently available. This text was written to bridge the gap between "academics" and "policy makers" by using theories, concepts, and methods that bridge theory and practice.
