Public Policymaking: An Introduction
Praised for clear, concise writing, this text presents a process-oriented approach within a logical framework for a better understanding of each stage of policymaking. This approach exhibits policymaking as a sequence of functional activities, beginning with the identification of a problem and agenda setting and concluding with evaluation, revision, or termination of a policy.
Chapter 5 focuses more on budgeting strategy rather than the technical process, and Chapter 6 includes coverage of administrative agencies that play a role in public policy.Thoroughly updated examples throughout include recent events such as the 2000 election, the Bush administration, and policy responses to September 11.Each chapter includes at least one case study.
