9781483391502: American Public Policy: Promise and Performance
Rezension:

American Public Policy has become an important foundation for my course in public policy.  It combines comprehensive and in-depth coverage of key substantive policy areas with an excellent survey of the core theories that inform the field of policy studies. It provides students with the knowledge they need to draw the most important lessons from the case studies, government reports, and journal articles I routinely assign.”

(Marc Allen Eisner)

“The skillful way in which Peters blends the practical and theoretical makes difficult concepts easier to understand.  Using this insightful and comprehensive text leads to meaningful class discussions.  It is the best of its kind for my introduction to public policy class.”

(John C. Mero)

“Policy matters, and this text shows why, how, and where that happens.  Peters is a policy scholar of long standing.  Thus does he know quite well which levers do what from a systemic perspective.  This text is a worthy overview suitable to the introductory course in public policy.”

(Pat Piskulich)
