MEDIA REVIEWS

"I would describe this textbook as a textbook that provides a lot of information in a succinct, easy to understand format. This textbook provides a sound link between theory and actual public policies thus providing a well-rounded text for an introduction to public policy course." -Jessica Ice, Florida State University

"It has an excellent, well-balanced coverage of the key issues that challenge our government. I would add that I admire it has been kept current as civilization and governance evolve."-Minzi Su, TennesseeState University

"The primary advantage of this book is the application of theories to different public policy areas. I find it an excellent opportunity to teach students about empirical approach in public policy: posing their own hypotheses and selecting theories that suit best their favorite public policy topics." -Olga Smirnova, East Carolina University

The main strengths of the book include overall comprehension, cohesiveness, and use of theories. Each chapter managers to cover a wide array of related concepts, and is densely packed with information. Yet, this is done with articulate brevity. My favorite aspect of this textbook is the use of different theories which makes this textbook an excellent tool to teach students how to empirically test theories." -Olga Smirnova, East Carolina University
