Overview

The most accessible policy text available.
Policy making is a political struggle over values and ideas. By exposing the paradoxes that underlie even seemingly straightforward policy decisions, Policy Paradox shows students that politics cannot be cleansed from the process in favor of “rationality.” Author Deborah Stone has fully revised and updated this popular text, which now includes many paradoxes that have arisen since September 11. Examples throughout the book have been updated, and the prose has been streamlined to make a great read even better.

This is an important book that provides a polis model of policy analysis. I like the way Stone challenges the common assumptions of the economic model of analysis. If you undertand that the world runs through power and politics and not through the principles of rational man --you will like this book. I highly recommend it.
