Scott Furlong, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and professor of political science at UW-Green Bay, has co-authored a new textbook. This is the 4th edition of the book, Rulemaking: How Government Agencies Write Law and Make Policy published by CQ Press.
While Furlong’s work has been featured in the prior editions of the book, this is the first time he has been listed as a co-author. Cornelius Kerwin, president of American University and professor of public administration, is also listed as a co-author of the book.
According to the publisher, Furlong and Kerwin “update this highly regarded text with new data, fresh analysis of interest groups’ participation in rulemaking, as well as coverage of the Obama administration’s early actions, from executive orders and key personnel to agencies’ responses to changes.”
The text is referred to as an “invaluable and accessible guide to this intensely political process.”
“The authors give a balanced approach, and in fact, they do an excellent job of maintaining objectivity especially in discussions of congressional and presidential participation in rulemaking,” Kay Hofer from Texas State University at San Marcos said in a review.
