GuyAmerican public policy promise and performanceVoting and elections may often be cited as the most entertaining aspect of political theatre, however, it is the arena of public policy that has the most direct impact on the lives of the citizenry. And as we have seen played out in recent debates over healthcare reform, policy changes can be dramatic, sweeping, and often hotly contested. Known for providing a trusted and comprehensive overview of the policy process, B. Guy Peters returns with the ninth edition of American Public Policy: Promise and Performance. Beyond walking students through the governmental structures and policy-making procedures, Peters efficiently covers a wide swath of policy areas, and then concludes with a look at both cost-benefit analysis and ethical analysis. Framed in context of the aftermath of the financial crisis and Great Recession, the ninth edition considers how policy has been impacted by persistent unemployment and growing income inequality. In addition, Peters discusses the strain on education budgets, increased oversight of financial activities, fiscal policies meant to stimulate the economy, and the political challenge of balancing the budget in light of increased public spending+-+8154753106206062ocn003186620book19770.59Peters, B.

They have, however, invested little in evaluating the effectiveness of their efforts, accepting many of the reforms because of a belief in a particular approach to governing or an ideological commitment on the part of politicians.

The typology is based in dimensions on actors, processes, and outcomes. Using this typology, the authors conclude that the state-centric and the 'governing without government' models both tend to produce suboptimal governance. Instead, governance models between these two extremes seem to be better geared to combine points of contact with society while at the same time being able to make autonomous decisions. This analysis is applied to different aspects of contemporary governance such as changing intergovernmental relationships and linkages between the European Union and domestic institutions."--BOOK JACKET+-+951194859640321ocn043569335book20000.81Kassim, HusseinThe national co-ordination of EU policy : the domestic levelConference proceedings"Eschewing the 'Europeanisation' problematic within which the issue is usually addressed, this book adopts a broader, more inclusive approach. It examines domestic processes and investigates co-ordination in ten member states - Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom - looking at co-ordinating ambitions, the actors involved in EU policy making, and the structures and processes by which policy is made." "From a comparative perspective, the book identifies and assesses the impact of the influences that have shaped systems of national co-ordination - the demands exerted by Union membership, the institutional structure of the national polity, the pre-existing balance between domestic institutions, administrative norms and values, and attitudes, both popular and elite, to European integration. It assesses the extent to which there has been a convergent response to the administrative challenges posed by membership on the part of the member states or whether a pattern of divergence emerges. The effectiveness of member states in influencing policy outcomes at the European level is also addressed."--BOOK JACKET+-+49114734653977ocn011784496book19850.76Hogwood, Brian WThe pathology of public policy39510ocn016404024book19880.76Campbell, ColinOrganizing governance, governing organizations11ocn222657009bookPeters, B.
