Explaining Local Policy Agendas.
The book examines the policy agenda effects of four central aspects of any political system: institutions, problems, elections and actors.
"Building on hundreds of thousands of systematically collected and content-coded local policy agenda observations, this book examines – theoretically and empirically – the policy agenda effects of four central aspects of any political system: the institutions that structure politics; the problems confronting the political system; the occurrence of regular elections; and the actors navigating the political system."
The publisher writes:
- "Advances our explanatory models of policy agendas by studying them at the local level of politics
- Provides new, important insights about the functioning of local politics that is gained by studying local policy agendas
- Presents the first large-N study of how key actors in government influence local policy agendas"
