From the Publisher"When I explained to my students why I adopted the text, I said I compared many texts and found this one to be among the best. The key strengths include: a. coverage; b. structure, c insights. The new edition seems to be made even stronger with the new appendices."
"Describing this text to a colleague I would say that this is an extremely competitive book and should be carefully considered. I think it is particularly strong in infusing policy analysis in a text with a general discussion of social welfare policy and its history. It also emphasizes the complexity of discussing and analyzing social policy."
"The text is pretty well organized, containing a great deal of up-to-date information and data on various policies. Also, it does offer a conceptual theoretical framework for understanding public policy and applying various methods of policy analysis."
