Policymaking — the art of deciding what programs to support, what laws to pass, or what regulations to write — is at the core of what Washington does and is what everyone, from the President on down, wants to influence.</p> <p><i>How Washington Actually Works For Dummies</i> isn't a dry explanation of the American system of government but a playbook for how Washington really works: who has a seat at the table, how the policymaking process works, and how one survives. It takes you inside the political process in Washington, discusses changes in recent decades, and explains how the parts fit together. You find out:</p> <ul> <li>Who really runs Washington</li> <li>Why the President’s power is limited</li> <li>How Congress (and its committee structure) works</li> <li>What the bureaucrats — the men and women behind the curtain — do to earn your tax dollars</li> <li>How lobbyists, activists, and other players influence policy</li> </ul> <p>In a presidential election year when economic issues are center stage and the candidates will go head to head in policy debates, there’s no better time to discover the ins and outs of how policy is actually made.</p>","bookOutOfPrint":false,"testBankPinActivationLink":"","publishedDate":"2013-07-31T12:11:16+00:00","primaryISBN":"9781118312957","secondaryISBNs":"9781118463239,9781118463192,9781118463246","learningType":"Explore","primaryCategory":{"categoryId":34474,"title":"American Government","slug":"american-government","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34474"}},"secondaryCategory":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"amazon":{"default":"//www.amazon.com/gp/product/1118312953/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","ca":"//www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1118312953/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","indigo_ca":"//www.tkqlhce.com/click-9208661-13710633?url=//www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/product/1118312953-item.html&cjsku=978111945484","gb":"//www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1118312953/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","de":"//www.amazon.de/gp/product/1118312953/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20"},"image":{"src":"//coursofppt.com/covers/9781118312957.jpg","width":250,"height":350},"authors":[{"authorId":9921,"name":"Greg Rushford","slug":"greg-rushford","description":" <b>Greg Rushford</b> has been observing Washington's political scene since 1967 &#8212; first as a student, then as a congressional aide during the 1970s, and, in recent decades, as a journalist who specializes in the politics of international trade and diplomacy.","hasArticle":false,"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/authors/9921"}}],"relatedArticles":{"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles?book=292731&offset=0&size=5"}},"relatedBooks":[],"cheatSheet":null,"bookAuthorBio":"<b data-author-id=\"9921\">Greg Rushford</b> has been observing Washington's political scene since 1967 &#8212; first as a student, then as a congressional aide during the 1970s, and, in recent decades, as a journalist who specializes in the politics of international trade and diplomacy.","additionalResourceLink":"","bookCompanionPage":{"pageId":0,"name":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"搜座舱简化":{"metaDescription":"How Washington Actually Works For Dummies (1118312953) tells you the real story about how things get done, or not done, in U.S. government.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0}},"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/books/292731"}},{"headers":{"timestamp":"2025-01-20T04:11:08+00:00"},"bookId":282651,"data":{"name":"Urban Planning For Dummies","title":"Urban Planning For Dummies","slug":"urban-planning-for-dummies","breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Academics & The Arts","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33662"},"slug":"academics-the-arts","categoryId":33662},{"name":"Political Science","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33751"},"slug":"political-science","categoryId":33751},{"name":"General Political Science","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33755"},"slug":"general-political-science","categoryId":33755}],"description":"<b>How to create the world's new urban future</b> <p>With the majority of the world's population shifting to urban centres, urban planning—the practice of land-use and transportation planning to help shape cities structurally, economically, and socially—has become an increasingly vital profession.
