The topic is wide-ranging, but editor Young (U. of Strathclyde, UK) has selected 17 articles to reprint in two volumes, on the themes of theory and context, policy eras, and attraction and policy competition. Many of the articles are chapters from books; others are from such journals as Academy of Management Review, Transnational Corporations, and J. of World Trade--the earliest from 1985, but most published in the late 1990s or 2000. Young provides an introductory essay leading into coverage of topics such as an economist's view of globalization and national government policies; restrictions on foreign ownership, codes and obligations of multinational enterprises, and a framework for FDI promotion. Indexing is by author, but not by subject. Annotation : 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).

Some say that public policy can be made without the benefit of theory—that it emerges, instead, through trial-and-error. Others see genuine philosophical issues in public affairs but try to resolve them through fanciful examples. Both, argues Robert E. Goodin, are wrong. Goodin—a political scientist who is also an associate editor of Ethics—shows that empirical and ethical theory can and should guide policy. To be useful, however, these philosophical discussions of public affairs must draw upon actual policy experiences rather than contrived cases. Further, they must reflect the broader social consequences of policies rather than just the dilemmas of personal conscience. Effectively integrating the literatures of social science, policy science, and philosophy, Goodin provides a theoretically sophisticated yet empirically well-grounded analysis of public policies, the principles underlying them, the institutions shaping them, and the excuses offered for their failures. This analysis is enhanced by the author's discussion of such specific cases as the disposal of nuclear wastes and the priority accorded national defense—cases that illustrate Goodin's theoretical and methodological framework for approaching policy issues.
