Known for providing a trusted and comprehensive overview of the policy process, B. Guy Peters walks students through governmental structures and policy-making procedures, while efficiently covering a wide swath of policy areas. He then concludes with a look at both cost-benefit analysis and ethical analysis.

Framed in context of the aftermath of the financial crisis and Great Recession, the ninth edition considers how policy has been impacted by persistent unemployment, growing income inequality, and the political challenge of balancing the budget in light of increased public spending. Fully up-to-date and taking into account the latest developments in the substantive policy areas, including disputes over the Affordable Care Act, education reform, energy policy, financial regulation, tax reform, and the nation′s debt and deficit, American Public Policy: Promise and Performance offers readers a nuanced look at the current state of American public policy.
