Public Policy and Global Change
This knowledge is vital for students to practice democratic citizenship: casting informed votes, participating in the nation's political life, and helping others to reach a better understanding of American public policy. While effective as a standalone text, this book is a companion to Dennis Patterson, ed., Readings in American Public Policy. The two books used together offer broad coverage of important issues and a wide range of diverse viewpoints on these issues.
The selections in Public Policy and Global Change:
- Illustrate globalization's effects on American politics and policy.
- Provide a broad spectrum of views on significant policy issues.
- Examine the issue of rising inequality.
