American Public Policy provides a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the landscape of public policy. This foundational text takes students through the governmental systems and core theories of policymaking before turning to in-depth exploration of key policy areas and tools of policy analysis. 

Important additions to this Tenth Edition include expanded discussions of policy instruments, the challenges for public policymakers presented by the continuing gridlock in Washington, the Affordable Care Act, higher education funding, reproductive rights, and gay rights. New coverage of fracking controversies, race and racial profiling, and the legalization of marijuana keeps students up to date with recent policy debates and issues.

About the Author:

B. Guy Peters is Maurice Falk Professor of American Government at the University of Pittsburgh. He has written extensively in the areas of public administration and public policy, both for the United States and comparatively. Among his recent publications are the Handbook of Public Administration and The Quest for Control: Politicization of the Public Service.

Review:

"American Public Policy has become an important foundation for my course in public policy.  It combines comprehensive and in-depth coverage of key substantive policy areas with an excellent survey of the core theories that inform the field of policy studies. It provides students with the knowledge they need to draw the most important lessons from the case studies, government reports, and journal articles I routinely assign."

Author: Marc Allen Eisner

"The skillful way in which Peters blends the practical and theoretical makes difficult concepts easier to understand.  Using this insightful and comprehensive text leads to meaningful class discussions.  It is the best of its kind for my introduction to public policy class."

Author: John C. Mero

"Policy matters, and this text shows why, how, and where that happens.  Peters is a policy scholar of long standing.  Thus does he know quite well which levers do what from a systemic perspective.  This text is a worthy overview suitable to the introductory course in public policy."

Author: Pat Piskulich
