Product description


"A sophisticated contribution to policy analysis and comparative politics. Norman K. Nicholson's brief introductory chapters provide a succinct analysis of each section's contribution to the 'arenas of power' model and to the limits of the model's explanatory leverage. Perhaps the most intriguing part of the book lies in its recasting of American political history by examining the critical impact of policy types and eras on the development of political processes, political structures, and political 'issues.'"
―The Review of Politics

“A dense and sophisticated contribution to policy analysis and comparative politics. … Arenas of Power provides a detailed and accessible analysis of policy types and lays the groundwork for broader comparative work.”
―The Journal of the Review of Politics
