Editorial Reviews

'This valuable text offers a comprehensive and highly readable introduction to public policy brought alive by helpful charts and boxes. Its excellent conceptual chapters are complemented by exemplary treatment of economic, welfare, health education and environmental policy and - most unique and timely - coverage of policy transfer, globalization, transnational developments and public policy in developing countries.' - Robert H. Blank, University of Canterbury, New Zealand.
