'The second edition of Implementing Public Policy builds on the extremely useful first edition, and is an excellent and timely contribution to the literature on implementation. As well as providing a thorough review of the literature on implementation it makes a number of important contributions to that literature. This volume represents the most extensive and useful treatment of implementation available
B. Guy Peters
Professor of Political Science, University of Pittsburgh
'This is by far the best textbook ever published on the topic of public policy implementation... Thus, it gives a much needed up-to-date and complete state-of-the-art review of this research field for graduate students and teachers while at the same time serving as an excellent introduction on the topic for those at the undergraduate level
University of Bergen, Norway
'Greatly enriched by recent scholarship, this second edition is even more valuable to students of public policy theory and governance and to a subfield of public administration and political science whose ranks are growing owing to efforts such as this one
Laurence E Lynn, Jr.
Emeritus Professor, University of Chicago
'Implementing Public Policy …not only gives a detailed overview of state-of the-art theory and research in policy implementation, but also discusses the profound implications of implementation studies for our understanding of the policy-making process. This book is a must-read for all scholars and students interested in public policy
Utrecht University, The Netherlands
This book is based on the authors' well-acclaimed first edition of the same title. Considerable work has gone into updating and re-contextualizing some of their earlier arguments and analysis in the light of an updated research and literature base. The second edition should be as valuable and well received as the first... This is a very useful publication, likely to be the main guide to implementation for some time
Public Management Review
