C. Nicandro Cruz UNAM. México
This book is an precise and extensive endeavor for understanding the problems, boudaries and potential use and application of knowledge for improving governmental performance.
Te basis of Dunn's approach to policy analysis, is that it depends to the production and transformation of five policy relevant information (about policy problems, policy futures, policy actions, policy outcomes and policy performance) through five policy-analytic procedures (problem-structuring, forecasting, recommendation, monitoring, and evaluation).
Perhaps the most important distinction is that problem structuring, "...which affects the use and asessment of the other four procedures, is really a metamethod (method of methods) that funtions as central regulator of the overall process of policy analysis." (page 65)
This analytical framework provide one of the most single effective way to analyze public policies and government programs, where the most important analyst's role is both to generate useful knowledge for decision making in all phases of policy process, and to generate plussible arguments by analythical procedures.
It is an ideal book for bachelor and graduate students interested in public problems that face governements, and in the role that can play all policy analyst in policy making.
Dunn's contribution to the study and use of policy analysis in academic and professional activities its out of question. 06-04-200

This book had a lot of information. But I felt a lot of it was redundant and not beneficial. The professor supplemented this textbook with another textbook and lots of outside reading material. To be honest I only used the book to look up definitions when studying for the exam.

La obra es excelente, desde el punto de vista de la orientación y la integración de diferentes enfoques disciplinarios y metodológicos.
La edición parece es peor que una fotocopia de mala calidad, no vale la pena gastar en el libro. Desmerecen por completo los editores a la calidad de esta obra. Y el precio no justifica la mala impresión.
