Kurzbeschreibung

28. April 2010
A critical challenge to Scotland's new system of government is the making and implementation of public policy. This book offers a comprehensive account of the policy process in contemporary Scotland. There is a review of theories of policy-making, focusing on decentralised systems. The author then identifies the key actors and institutions, patterns of policy making, and the extent of convergence and divergence in comparison with England and other devolved territories. Case studies of policy making in health, higher education, housing, criminal justice, social inclusion and economic development allow the reader to see how policy making works in practice. There is an analysis of financial planning and decision making, and an examination of Scotland's role in UK and European policy networks. Comparisons are made with other devolved governments in Europe and beyond. The book is based on extensive research, including interviews with leaders of interest groups, politicians and officials across the Scottish Government and in the Scottish Parliament, an analysis of spending patterns, an examination of the legislative output, and case studies of policy making. Key Features *Provides the only comprehensive account of policy-making under devolution in Scotland *Places Scotland within a broader theoretical and comparative framework and analyses institutions and processes of policy-making *Contains case studies of specific policy fields and a thorough treatment of financial questions *Emphasis is placed on Scotland's insertion into UK, European and international networks The second edition includes new and updated information in the following areas: * Election results * Voting by class, etc. * Manifestoes * Scottish Executive (now Government) departments * Background of MSPs * Committees * Expenditure data There is also updating to take account of the change in government in 2007, including substantially revised material on intergovernmental relations and on Europe. The case studies on policy making have also been updated, with extensive changes in the section on economic development. In addition there is a new discussion of proposals for further devolution, following the National Conversation and the Calman Commission.

Pressestimmen

Second editions are often first editions plus some cosmetic changes and a few updates. Michael Keating's second edition of The Government of Scotland is much more than this. Of course it brings things up to date, including a nuanced analysis of the impact an SNP Government has had on politics and policy in Scotland. But it also develops much more strongly the theme of how politics and policy have become re-scaled within the state. Scotland appears here as an especially interesting case study of the territorialisation of 'policy community' and the embedding of a distinctive policy style. This is one of the best books on devolution so far. -- Charlie Jeffery, Head of School of Social and Political Science, Edinburgh University Second editions are often first editions plus some cosmetic changes and a few updates.

Synopsis

A critical challenge to Scotland's new system of government is the making and implementation of public policy. This book offers a comprehensive account of the policy process in contemporary Scotland. It identifies the key actors and institutions, patterns of policy making, and the extent of convergence and divergence in comparison with England and other devolved territories. Case studies of policy making in urban and rural policy, education, social inclusion and economic development allow the reader to see how policy making works in practice. There is an analysis of financial planning and decision making, and an examination of Scotland's role in UK and European policy networks. Comparisons are made with other devolved governments in Europe and beyond. The book is based on extensive research, including interviews with leaders of interest groups, politicians and officials across the Scottish Executive and in the Scottish Parliament, an analysis of spending patterns, an examination of the legislative output, and case studies of policy making.Key Features: * Uses case studies of policy making in public service provision, health, higher education, social inclusion, economic development and rural policy * Includes material on interest groups and policy communities * Analyses public expenditure in Scotland * Places Scotland in a comparative context as a small European stateless nation -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .
