Sort order. Good overview of what is going on. Great read for me coming from academic policy to work with public policy. Sep 19, Steven Peterson rated it really liked it. This is a nice, functional textbook on the public policy process. It is a bit brief for my tastes, but is organized nicely.
The first part lays out the basics--Why study public policy? What are the theoretical approaches to public policy? What is the context in which public policy develops.
This is an important chapter, since context varies from country to country, and the reader must understand that. I teach a graduate course in public policy and a doctoral course in policy analysis. The chapter This is a nice, functional textbook on the public policy process. The chapter on context, to me, is critical in such a class--and the chapter is nicely done in this text.
The next part of the book looks at the stages of the policy process: 1 agenda setting what are the issues that get on the table for serious discussion ; 2 policy formulation How do we determine the policy alternatives from which to choose? The final chapter looks at policy change. All in all, a nicely written book that considers key issues. Perhaps somewhat more detail would be helpful, but.

Still reading. View 1 comment. Dec 10, Dr. Faheem J. Khan rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Far better public policy book than many available in the market. Especially for public policy students and researchers. Easy reading, understandable language, reasonable arguments, nice everyday examples and good flow of discussion. Shelves: policy-studies , university. This is a very informative book—it is packed with details.
The problem is, it is packed with details, which are often boring. This was a very useful book for Public Policy, but I wouldn't imagine anyone reading it outside of the academic world.
