‘The Dictionary of Public Policy captures the length, breadth, and depth of the burgeoning discipline of public policy. It is a requisite tool for researchers and practitioners alike. It is authoritative, exhaustive, concise, and illuminating, as it translates the complexity of public policy into pithy entries with useful links to further reading.
