The new Eighth Edition examines the budgeting process over time and sets issues like the federal deficit and health care expenditures in political and comparative context. As in previous editions, the book also draws on examples from all levels of government and emphasizes the relationships among them. By carefully analyzing each strand of the decision-making process, Rubin shows the extraordinary cooperation involved in passing a budget and achieving accountability.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Politics of Public Budgeting is an excellent text for anyone who is interested in learning about federal, state, and/or local government as explained by the budgeting process. It is engaging and easy to navigate while also being comprehensive and insightful. This balance is a difficult one to strike and Irene Rubin does it masterfully. I think the highest praise is that my students always comment on how much they enjoy their readings and the subsequent quality of conversations during class. This text is a classic and we are fortunate that she continues to update it and keep it current." -- Whitney Afonso
"This is a very readable, easily understood book on public budgeting basics for all three levels of government-Federal, State, and Local-that I have used in Master's Public Finance course since 2000. It provides a balanced, comprehensive approach that appeals to students and practitioners alike, and the mini-cases add a learning experience unmatched by any other texts on the subject. As a City Manager for over 20 years and in local government for over 35 years, I found myself nodding in agreement with Dr. Rubin's practical, concise observations on public budgeting - she gets it right, and this is the way it really works from my experience." -- Mark Nagel
"Irene Rubin does an outstanding job with this text on public budgeting. She immerses the reader deep into the world of public budgeting while simultaneously illustrating the political realities of budgets. Rubin engages student with well-thought-out organization and discussions in each chapter. The mini-cases insightfully create a picture of the budgeting process that students truly enjoy using for class discussion. The Politics of Public Budgeting is ideal for both graduate and undergraduate students." -- Paul J. Pope
"The Politics of Public Budgeting is an excellent textbook because it provides a more global perspective, a public policy, and a political perspective regarding public budgeting, and therefore provides much needed context for the students. The mini-case studies in particular provide samples from all levels of government, local, state and federal, which provide students with contemporary samples of public budgeting politics, issues and concerns." -- Steve Wantz
