Public Policy Analysis, the most widely cited book on the subject, provides readers with a comprehensive methodology of public policy analysis.

Starting from the premise that policy analysis is an applied social science discipline designed for solving practical problems facing public and nonprofit organizations, the book bridges the gap between theory and practice. It provides practical skills for conducting policy analysis and communicating findings through memos, position papers, and other forms of structured analytical writing. The book asks readers to critically anazlye the arguments of policy practitioners as well as political scientists, economists, and political philosophers.

William N. Dunn is Professor at University of Pittsburgh, USA.
