This is an updated edition of a text that stresses incrementalism and the intelligence of democracy. Lindblom deals with the enduring fundamental political processes that warp substantive policies and distort the use of analytic tecniques. The book emphasizes the policy-making role of the citizen, challenging the assumption that political elites and policy analysis professionals hold the keys to problem-solving.
