While updating content to reflect recent research and trends, the authors continue to inform undergraduate students on substantive issues in public policy, including its contexts, its place within the economy and economic issues such as government-business relationships and taxing, energy and environmental issues, crime and criminal justice, income support, health care, education, legal and social equality, immigration policy, foreign and defense policy, private morality and the continuing debates about policy. They pay particularly close attention to such issues as the role of the possibility of terrorism in policy decision-making and recent trends in how health care is operated and regulated in the US.
