A very good basic text on how to advocate for policy changes. Clearly written and practical. Would be excellent for undergraduate students or a practitioner new to policy. Not in-depth as to actual policy development, writing, or implementation. Therefore, if used by an advanced level practitioner or graduate student, this should be a supplemental text.
