Yes, the book, like others have mentioned, is not unbiased. You'd be advised to go into it knowing that you're going to have to read around the bias to get something out of this book. However, I imagine that if you already realize that this book is biased then you won't drink the Kool-Aid.

There are things I like about this book. It is straight forward and clear. I like the fact that the author has kept chapter lengths reasonable without a lot of unneeded fluff.

I first studied public policy over 20 years ago and have purchased successive editions of Thomas Dye's "Understanding Public Policy". My current library has his fifth, eleventh and twelfth editions. I have had other editions - long discarded.

I was always impressed by both the comprehensivness and depth of his analysis of selected topics. Indeed I used at as a standard refernce book in formulating my views on a range of topics even though I am an Australian looking at an American academic text book. I regarded it as far superior to many local public policy books.

However, I recently obtained the fourteenth edition and found that it not only repeated a lot of old material about the policy models but that its actual treatment of topics lacked the depth of previous editions. It was simply an overview lacking much of the depth and opinion which has characterised his previous works. The chapter on the Environment was particularly disappointing and he seems to have backed off his legitimate critique of global warming and the "cost-benefit" analysis of particular courses of action. I am not suggesting that he should firmly adopt an opinion one way or the other but at least the earlier versions made one think about the topic and what students and the general reader should consider in any analysis of the subject matter, whereas the latter version is simply a summary of the topic which you could get from any number of other policy sources.

I thought this edition was not as good as its predecessors.

This book is apparently not compatible with Kindle for PC. It can also not be used on Kindle Cloud Reader. I have no other devices in order to try and use this. I have gone through three weeks of "support" with Amazon to try and get this fixed, and the "support" has become more and more ridiculous. Just get the physical book. I just placed an order for the physical book and will be requesting a full refund on the kindle book order.

I'm using this book to clarify public policy concepts for a graduate course. Contrary to other posts, Dye's writing style is not simple. He just avoids using all the jargon academics typically like to fill textbooks with. That jargon defeats the purpose of clarity for students. I appreciate the straight shooter writing style that is clear and easy to understand. The book is a good supplement to the more dense and difficult-to-read policy textbooks out there.

Great book Each chapter talks about different societal issues and the policies implemented for said issues, while also applying Political Science theories where applicable. My first class in Public Policy and it helped simplify what the whole public policy process is about. Definitely a book I would recommend!
