Raising questions for discussion and research, the book encourages the reader to think independently and critically about the policy process. I cannot think of a better way to inspire the next generation of public policy students and practitioners.
Professor Birkland’s 4th edition of this introductory text to public policy continues to deliver esoteric policy theories and practical public policy content pitched at a level both casual enough for undergraduates am sophisticated enough for beginning graduate students.
New to this edition are arrays of teaching and learning tools that make kntroduction almost off-the-shelf ready for instructors; new organization of the material and a focus on recent trends make the content relevant for the here and now.
This volume introduces readers to the actors, outputs, models, and theories involved in deciding what government does in the name of the public. Students will quickly see how this process applies across states, policy domains, and time.
They will gain an appreciation for how seemingly separate institutions all come together in the policy process.

Its comprehensive and cohesive approach to the study of the policy process gives students the proper tools and perspectives with which to puzzle and understand how U.
He makes classic and contemporary policy scholarship come alive by using recent policy cases and inviting readers to consider issues in relation to their own values and goals. Policy studies newbies and experts alike will find this comprehensive, reader-friendly primer engaging, informative, and inspiring. Birkland takes on and readily accomplishes the hard task of illustrating and illuminating various features of the policy process as well as organizing and synthesizing a vast amount of information on these features.
Students, policy practitioners, and other readers will find the updated fourth edition insightful and replete with current, real-world examples. This book should be required reading for anyone seeking to acquire an understanding of the American policy process. The text embraces the complexity of policy making while bringing systematic coherence to how it can be understood and studied.
Real life examples and case studies coupled with straightforward descriptions of theory bring to life the art and science of policy. I highly recommend this for undergraduates as an introduction introductuon policy and for more advanced courses where policy is an important, but not central, element to study.
