Review

Praise for the third edition:

"I have found this book to be particularly useful for exposing students to the major theories in the field. Each chapter breaks a particular theory down into a fairly concise manner. Theories of the Policy Process provides students with a working knowledge of a theory that really assists in their eventual mastery of the theory in subsequent readings. I have found this approach to significantly enhance and improve students' ability to understand the original texts the chapters are based upon."
--Alesha Doan, University of Kansas

"This is without question the best book on the theories of the policy process. There are many policy textbooks out there, but none that engage with contemporary theories of the process in such a comprehensive way."
--Robert S. Wood, University of North Dakota

Praise for prior editions:

"This sophisticated primer will have much appeal for those who subscribe to policy models that put boundedly rational individuals at the centre of their analyses. Its attractiveness lies in its elaboration as well as critique of these approaches."
--"Canadian Journal of Political Science"

"Theories of the Policy Process is an excellent...state-of-the-art volume: the less we consider it as the 'qualifying round' for future public policy theory, the more we will learn from it."
--"ECPR News"
