Now in its fourth edition, Public Policy: Perspectives and Choices successfully combines a clear explanation of the basic concepts and methods of the policymaking process with a keen focus on how values influence policy choices. The authors first cover the fundamentals: · How do issues reach the policy agenda? · How are policies crafted and implemented? · Who pays and who benefits? · How is the effectiveness of a policy determined? They then apply this foundation to a range of policy areas: the economy, welfare, education, crime, health care, housing, the environment, foreign policy, and domestic security. The fully updated text: · Presents complicated ideas in an accessible way · Engages with controversial ideas that bring the study of public policy alive · Draws on a wealth of ¿real world¿ examples · Provides balanced consideration of liberal and conservative policy positions · Emphasizes the essential relationship between individual self-interest and national well-being The result is an ideal combination of theory and practice for effectively teaching public policy.
