Additional Book Details

American Public Policy provides a comprehensive overview of the policy-making process. From procedural approaches and policy instruments to in-depth analysis of specific policy issues, bestselling author B. Guy Peters does not shy away from the complexity of governmental procedure and ensures that the mechanisms of the policy process are understandable through the discussion of topical policy areas.    

The Twelfth Edition shows readers how the background for policy in the United States has changed dramatically over the past several years in the midst of political polarization and gridlock, unemployment and recessions, and calls for greater diversity and inclusion. New topics include the eroding trust in government, the COVID-19 pandemic and relief packages, the expanding national debt, the rising costs of health care and calls for "Medicare for All", the rollback of environmental regulations under the Trump administration, and the rebuilding of alliances abroad.
