Table of Contents

The ideal first reading for any course in public policy, this brief text traces the dynamics of the policy making process:
— the triggering of issue awareness;
— emergence of an issue on the public agenda;
— the formulation of a public policy commitment dealing with the issue;
— the implementation process that translates policy into practice.

Throughout the book. Gerston brings his analysis to life with abundant examples from recent and historic cases of public policy making. At the sa time, with well-chosen references, he places public policy analysis in the disciplinary context of political science and deftly orients the reader to the classics of public policy studies. Study questions and lists of recommended readings accompany each chapter.
