Summary

The skills your students learn in your policy analysis course are crucial to their future careers as policy analysts and public managers. Not only is the content of the course important, but how that information is conveyed makes all the difference over the course of your semester.
Do students complain about your current policy analysis text?

Would they benefit from an engaging book that makes clear how quantitative tools will be useful in their future careers?

If the answer is yes, postpone your adoption decision for fall semester until you have taken a close look at Dipak Guptaís new text, Analyzing Public Policy: Concepts, Tools and Techniques, to be published in April. Employing a conversational tone and offering a wealth of real-world policy examples, Gupta develops the tools and techniques of policy analysis in a sequenced and logical fashion.

The book begins with a brief introduction to the field of public policy and the vital importance of policy analysis in public and non-profit organizations. The students' toolbox is gradually filled, as they are taught research design, hypothesis testing, projection, forecasting, multiple regression, and benefit-cost analysis. Each concept is clearly defined and developed through specific cases, allowing students to master a skill and understand its practical application. Hundreds of tables and figures graphically show ideas and data, while boxed case studies highlight policy dilemmas of particular interest. Abundant key terms and exercises help students review and study.
