Overview


To explain the fundamentals of public policy, this best-selling text focuses on the process behind the crafting of legislation. By examining the individual steps--from identifying a problem, to agenda setting, to evaluation, revision, or termination of a policy--students are able to see how different factors influence the creation of policy. Each chapter features at least one case study that illustrates how general ideas are applied to specific policy issues. This new Seventh Edition addresses the economic crisis as well as how the Obama administration differs from the Bush administration in its approach to policy making.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This text is balanced, objective and at times, scientific, while also providing a realistic summary of how politics factors into decision-making. I particularly like the case studies that are included in each chapter—they are more than cursory and perfectly chosen to help make chapter concepts concrete in the minds of students… I find the writing quite engaging and logical." -Shankar Prasad, NYU Wagner

"I have yet to see any book that does a better job with the concepts than Anderson does. It is a classic introduction to public policy. The text is concise and focuses on all the necessary concepts in understanding the field of public policy." -Jeffrey Brauer
