In THE PUBLIC AGENDA, students are introduced to six relevant and specific policy issues (the economy, education, health care, terrorism/international affairs, the criminal justice system, and civil and minority rights) and learn how to address them. Succinct, yet detailed enough to spur classroom discussion and debate, THE PUBLIC AGENDA inspires students of public policy and American Government as the authors analyze several differing views of each issue and challenge students to evaluate whether possible solutions adequately meet the public's needs.
