This textbook offers a fresh approach to the study of comparative politics and public policy. Instead of concentrating on why countries differ, Learning From Comparative Public Policy explores how countries can learn from each other about the success and failure of policy initiatives. With its theory and practise focus, the lively narrative analyses the cultural and resources problems involved in importing policies, and the roles of institutions, regulators, think tanks and experts ÍNDICE Part 1: Getting Started 1.
