With reports ranging from immigration and the economy to sports and sexual assault, Issues for Debate in American Public Policy, Nineteenth Edition promotes in-depth discussion, facilitates further research, and helps readers formulate their own positions on crucial policy issues.

  • The Trump presidency
  • Affirmative action and college admissions
  • High-tech policing
  • Immigration and the economy
  • Sports and sexual assault
  • Trust in media
  • And much more!

  • A pro/con debate box in every chapter offers readers the opportunity to critically analyze and discuss the policy issues by exploring a debate between two experts in the field.
  • All issues include a chronology, a bibliography, photos, charts, and figures to offer readers a more complete picture of the issue at hand.
