What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Thompson has managed to bring a fresh, global perspective that is sure to give specialists a new vision of old problems and novices a thoroughly understandable, readable, and sophisticated introduction to the field.... For students of politics more generally, the book is chock full of insights about political dynamics that obtain in many other policy areas: expansionism in distributive programs, by-pass strategies in federal-state relations, and cream-skimming in service delivery programs...." Journal of Health Policy, Politics and Law
