Description: This unique new text gives students the philosophical and analytical tools they need to place todays policy issues within a normative context, evaluate the policy actions of our government, and understand and appraise the choices our policymakers make. Combining practical, real world examples with both empirical and normative theory, this book uniquely provides students of public policy with the tools they need to understand and appraise policymaking in the United States. Empirically, it gives students the theoretical approaches that will help them understand why policymakers behave as they do. Normatively, it helps students to determine the appropriate role of government, the relationship of self-interest and public interest, the standards of judgment that citizens and policymakers can use to define problems and evaluate alternative solutions, and how Americas political culture influences how we think about these matters.
