The selections are grouped thematically into sections designed to reflect the way public policy courses are taught. Coverage includes the overall context of public policy; decision making in support of policy making; the influence of interest groups; how policies arrive on governmental agendas; the political economy of public policy; policy making by the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches of government; foreign policy; public policy as public relations; and an overview of policy analysis.
