Policy and Politics in Six Nations: A Comparative Perspective on Policy Making

For Comparative Public Policy, Introduction to Comparative Politics and Government, and Social Policy courses. Filling a void in the study of policy and politics, this volume blends an introductory perspective to policy making with a traditional treatment of comparative government and politics. The text traces policy evolution and development in six individual nations and then discusses similarities, differences and discernable patterns. The straightforward presentation is designed to provide students with a greater understanding of cross-national policy learning while integrating the study of public policy with mainstream comparative politics.
