About This Book

This introduction applies analytic models to policymaking challenges, equipping students with tools to evaluate core policymaking dilemmas. Students are introduced to the approaches of game theory, social choice theory, research design and causal inference. Key terms, along with current research, are highlighted to build an understanding of public policy study. Exercises and thought questions enable students to develop skills to assess public policy dilemmas. The analytically rigorous style of the text is accessible and avoids lengthy descriptions. Supplementary resources for instructors include extensive notes, ancillaries and online resources, including a test bank, quizzes and editable lecture slides for all chapters that can be modified to fit particular courses. This textbook is suitable for introductory public policy and public administration courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Overview
Public
policy
is
the
study
of
government
activity,
including
laws,
regulations,
and
funding
priorities,
and
its
in
uence
on
society.
We
study
public
policy
to
satisfy
three
basic
needs:
our
desire
to
ensure
that
government
actions
are
accountable
to
the
public,
whether
government
expend-
itures
are
ef
cient,
and
that
government
is
fair
or
equitable
in
its
application.
