From the Publisher"Framed by a resonant introduction, this volume powerfully places policy content at the heart of American lawmaking and statecraft. Here is that unusual instance when a collection of rigorously researched and argued essays constitutes a large and compelling intellectual contribution, a manifesto for a content-rich political science."
Ira I. Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University
"Represents a major contribution to the study of American public policy. Jeffery Jenkins and Sidney Milkis have brought together an exceptional group of scholars full of insights into how major policy breakthroughs are achieved, blocked, or deeply compromised."
Eric Schickler, Professor, Jeffrey and Ashley McDermott Endowed Chair, and Department Chair of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
"This first-rate group of scholars assembled by Jeffery Jenkins and Sidney Milkis illuminate how traditional governing arrangements - the separation of powers and federalism - have actually permitted this development and, in turn, been changed by it. Readers will learn a tremendous amount about a wide-ranging and highly relevant group of policy areas and, what’s more, they will come to a new understanding of the American state itself."
Suzanne Mettler, Clinton Rossiter Professor of American Institutions, Cornell University
"This superb book portrays a nation in the grip of "policy-mindedness", not a flight into polarized gridlock. The result is a thoroughly Madisonian adaptation to the challenges of programmatic government."
Rick Valelly, Claude C. Smith '14 Professor of Political Science, Swarthmore College
