Longman is proud to announce thatAgendas, Alternatives, and Public Policieshas been reissued in this Longman Classics edition, featuring a new epilogue: Health Care Reform from Clinton to Obama. Comparing the Clinton administration in 1993 with the Obama administration in 2009 and 2010, Kingdon analyses how agenda setting, actors, and alternatives affect public policy. Kingdonrs"s landmark work on agenda setting and policy formation is drawn from interview conducted with people in and around the U.S. federal government, and from case studies, government documents, party platforms, press coverage, and public opinion surveys. While other works examine how policy issues are decided, Kingdonrs"s book was the first to consider how issues got tobeissues. This enduring work attempts to answer the questions: How do subjects come to officialsrs" attention? How are the alternatives from which they choose generated? How is the governmental agenda set? Why does an idears"s time come when it does?
