This textbook for public policy students explains the fundamental concepts behind this emerging discipline, providing an integrated view of a field that is often marked by strong differences toward epistemology, methodologies and theories. Smith (political science, U. of Nebraska, Lincoln) and Larimer (political science, U. of Northern Iowa) approach this subject matter with the intent to clarify a "confusing and cumbersome" field, and they define the key issues of public policy such as its relationship with politics, the tools used to assess policy impact and how to implement these policies in the most effective manner. The introduction of scientific processes into the study of public policy is also reviewed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( Read More
