“This is an in-depth yet quite accessible overlook of public policy in the United States…With this updated version, Peters’ text keeps up with the ever-changing world of American public policy while still giving students the tools to better understand this process.”
“American Public Policy delivers its readers a well-organized and highly accessible overview of the field of public policy. By striking an effective balance of public policy theory, real-world data, and historical examples, Peters’ text has become an essential component of my introductory public policy courses.”
“American public policy is one of the most detailed and compelling text on domestic public policy on the market.”
“This text is accessibly written without being overly-simplistic, thorough without being too weighty, and it discusses issues relevant to modern students of American public policy.”
“Peters’ text is a comprehensive approach to the process, substance, and context of policymaking. In an era where politics seemingly trumps the study of policy as an academic field, Peters shows his reader the technical aspects of policymaking and the theories underlying policy decisions. At the same time, Peters makes the topics approachable to students from many personal and academic backgrounds.”
“A high-level introduction to American politics and political science (as it relates to policymaking), public and political institutions, the construction, implementation and evaluation of public policies, and the politics and mechanics of specific policy instruments and areas.”
This text was better suited for a graduate level course than undergrad (my course)
Was a really comprehensive book for my class. Will definitely use again.
