9780195428025: Studying Public Policy: Policy Cycles and Policy Subsystems

Studying Public Policy examines three dimensions of efforts to engage and resolve public problems: policy actors, institutions, and ideas. Using this focus, the book overviews past efforts to understand public policy-making, outlines the different stages of the policy-making process, and discusses the principal elements and patterns of policy dynamics. Developing an analytical framework of the subject, the text examines the theoretical and conceptual foundations of, and approaches used in, policy sciences giving students a solid basis for understanding public policy. This edition has been fully updated with new developments in the field and revised with clear language and an easy-to-understand structure, making it the most current, student-friendly resource available.

Review:


"The authors offer an excellent approach to the study of the public policy-making process in the US using an applied problem-solving model....Goes beyond previous work to provice many helpful models for organizing a wide variety of approaches to the subject, including public choice, welfare economics, corporatism, pluralism, neoinstitutionalism, and statism."--Choice


"...One of the most useful works to appear recently in the field of public policy...Provides a sophisticated guide to contemporary scholarship and conceptualization on diverse aspects of the policymaking endeavor...[The authors] succeed admirably in portraying the complexity and contingent nature of the process, as well as the rich inhtellectual tradition that is giving birth to policy science as its own unique discipline."--American political Science Review
