Promotional Information

"This is an unusually imaginative and innovative collection of essays. What Ingram, Smith, and their colleagues have done is to place citizenship at the center of questions about policy design. How do we encourage people to become active, informed citizens who take responsibility for their communities? The authors provide some provocative and important answers." --Jeffrey M. Berry, Tufts University "This book revolves around an exiting and innovative central theme: Even if policies fail to achieve their mandated goal, they can be designed so that they make a positive contribution to the political process. This is a genuine politics of public policy." --Theodore J. Lowi, Cornell University "Public Policy i shaped b citizens, but citizens are also shaped by public policy. The authors of the book shed new light on the myriad ways in which government and citizens interact --a first step in strengthening both democracy and democratic theory." --Alan Wolfe, Boston University

Reviews

"A fine collection... Each essay adds something to the book's binding proposition that public policies can encourage greater citizen involvement. All of this is meritorious and long overdue for a profession and discipline historically more concerned with efficiency than citizen participation and democratic values." -- Journal of Policy Analysis and Management "This is an unusually imaginative and innovative collection of essays.
