Editorial Reviews

Review


"We (as faculty) need to improve the ways students write about and communicate in public policy. It is a practical skill we most neglect in our teaching--and the very one that prepares students for the real world of public affairs. In sum, we've needed a book like this for a long time--it will aid us in teaching skills as well as knowledge to our students."--Daniel Gitterman, University of North Carolina

I'm not sure about this edition of this book, but the earlier edition was a huge letdown. Instead of an actual guide with points and explanations, this book was a case study based on student experiences and internships. For those seeking to become truly good policy writers and thinkers, I recommend The Eightfold Path by Eugene Bardach. But again , please note this is based on earlier editions, not this one.

I bought the text to assist me to develop a course on policy writing and it was perfect for this function. The steps that it outlines are clear and practical and applicable in any country context.
