"Public Policy Praxis is one of the best books on the market right now. It does an excellent job of covering various approaches to policy analysis, and it offers solid advice to students about how and when to use the different approaches." -R. McGreggor Cawley, University of Wyoming Public Policy Praxis: A Case Approach for Understanding Policy and Analysis Second Edition Randy S. Clemons Mark K. McBeth This readable and conceptual approach to public policy balances theory and practice to provide students at all levels with a solid grounding in policy analysis. Authors Randall S. Clemons and Mark K. McBeth explore the impact of mixed methodologies on policy analysis and support their discussions with engaging teaching cases. Offering a balanced view of public policy, the text addresses the political basis of policy making and analysis and covers the limitations, practical problems, and ethical implications of different techniques and methodologies. Models and tools help students develop the analytical skills necessary for policy analysis, while thought-provoking boxes and anecdotes relate concepts to specific examples. In addition to new coverage throughout, this edition has been revised to be even more accessible to undergraduates without diminishing its value to graduate students. New to the Second Edition Political storytelling is introduced as a key component of the text. A new case exploring the politics involved in placing a big-box chain store within a community highlights the conflict surrounding economic development projects. The stakeholder mapping tool has been extended. Chapter Eight is reorganized into five key positivist tools and includes new material on the use and misuse of Internet surveys. An all-new Teaching Appendix offers students an opportunity to review key concepts and skills, including story analysis writing policy analysis ethical decision-making three streams theoryClemons, Randy S. is the author of 'Public Policy Praxis', published 2008 under ISBN 9780136056522 and ISBN 0136056520.
