Studying Public Policy examines three dimensions of efforts to engage and resolve public problems: policy actors, institutions, and ideas. Using this focus, the book overviews past efforts to understand public policy-making, outlines the different stages of the policy making process, anddiscusses the principle elements and patterns of policy dynamics. SPP develops an analytical framework of the subject for students in public policy courses. Instead of focusing on the substantive policy of a particular policy area, the book examines the theoretical and conceptual foundations of,and approaches used, in the policy sciences.
