Voting and elections may often be cited as the most entertaining aspect of political theatre, however, it is the arena of public policy that has the most direct impact on the lives of the citizenry. And as we have seen played out in recent debates over healthcare reform, policy changes can be dramatic, sweeping, and often hotly contested. Known for providing a trusted and comprehensive overview of the policy process, B. Guy Peters returns with the ninth edition of American Public Policy: Promise and Performance. Beyond walking students through the governmental structures and policy-making procedures, Peters efficiently covers a wide swath of policy areas, and then concludes with a look at both cost-benefit analysis and ethical analysis. Framed in context of the aftermath of the financial crisis and Great Recession, the ninth edition considers how policy has been impacted by persistent unemployment and growing income inequality. In addition, Peters discusses the strain on education budgets, increased oversight of financial activities, fiscal policies meant to stimulate the economy, and the political challenge of balancing the budget in light of increased public spending.

Internationale Organisationen mit globaler oder regionaler Reichweite (z.B. UN, IWF, Weltbank, WTO, EU) spielen eine zunehmend wichtige Rolle bei der Schaffung und Implementierung von internationalen Normen und Regeln, mithin bei Global Governance. Die Sicherheit, das ökonomische Wohlergehen, der Schutz der Menschenrechte und die ökologischen Lebensbedingungen von Menschen weltweit werden von der Fähigkeit bzw. Unfähigkeit internationaler Organisationen, Kooperation und Regieren jenseits des Nationalstaates möglich zu machen und zu stabilisieren, beeinflusst. Das Lehrbuch will die Leserin bzw. den Leser daher theoretisch informiert und empirisch fundiert mit den Entstehungsbedingungen, der Entwicklung, Funktionsweise und den Tätigkeiten internationaler Organisationen vertraut machen. Es führt in die wichtigsten Theorien über internationale Organisationen ein und bietet einen historischen Überblick über internationale Organisationen in verschiedenen Politikfeldern. Das Lehrbuch analysiert ferner die Akteure, Strukturen und Prozesse, die die Entscheidungsfindung in internationalen Organisationen prägen. Schließlich werden die Tätigkeiten eines breiten Spektrums internationaler Organisationen und deren Beitrag zur kooperativen Bearbeitung grenzüberschreitender Probleme in den Sachbereichen „Sicherheit“, „Wirtschaft“, „Umwelt“ und „Menschenrechte“ untersucht.

Kann man ganz Amerika in ein Buch packen? Geschichte und Gegenwart? Popkultur und Frömmigkeit? Glänzende Oberfläche und enttäuschte Versprechen? Mit »Pulphead« hat John Jeremiah Sullivan bewiesen, dass das möglich ist. In der Tradition von Meistern wie Tom Wolfe und Hunter S. Thompson verwischt er die Grenze zwischen Literatur und Journalismus, Erzählung und Reportage, Hochliteratur und Unterhaltung, Hemingway und Hollywood. Wie in einem Panoptikum entsteht aus Artikeln über Axl Rose, christliche Rockfestivals, Reality TV, die Tea-Party-Bewegung, vergessene Naturforscher und den heruntergekommenen Süden das Panorama eines Landes, das der Rest der Welt immer weniger versteht. Pulphead löste in den USA wahre Jubelstürme aus, und die Begeisterung hat längst auch die alte Welt respektive die Bundesrepublik erreicht: »Noch jeder ungläubige Thomas, der dem konzertierten Entzücken misstrauen wollte, kehrte mit leuchtenden Augen von der Lektüre zurück.« Der Tagesspiegel »Essays aus und über Amerika von einem, der schreiben kann, dass einem der Mund offen stehen bleibt.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung »Die besten Geschichten über Amerika, die Popkultur und die Gegenwart seit langem.« Süddeutsche Zeitung »... die besten Geschichten schreibt immer noch das Leben, und das ist Sullivans Stoff.« Tages-Anzeiger »Sehr, sehr gute, wahre, berührende Geschichten darüber, was es heißen kann, heute zu leben« Süddeutsche Zeitung

Designed for upper-level and professional courses, this text is a state-of-the-art introduction to the public policymaking process that gives equal attention to issues of policy implementation and public governance. It uses an innovative systems approach, integrating the activities, actors, tools, and techniques of policymaking, to provide a comprehensive framework for policy design and analysis. The book is practice-oriented, with a focus on the ways that policymakers at all levels employ the standard technologies of governance--authority, agency, program, rule, contract, and budget--to design policy outputs and achieve policy outcomes. Through extensive use of graphics, the text makes concepts easy to grasp for a generation of students accustomed to the visual presentation of ideas. Case studies illustrate the tools and techniques discussed, and key terms, questions for discussion, and suggested readings round out each chapter. Among the many emerging issues covered in this text that will be especially relevant for upper-level and professional programs and student-practitioners are: --program design --performance management --public contracting --policy networks --venue shopping --commercial and nonprofit sector participation in the policymaking process.
