"Howlett and Tosun have brought together a leading collection of internationally renowned scholars to produce the definitive compendium on comparative policy styles. The volume provides a rich series of case studies and contrasting approaches to the way governments around the world identify policy options, articulate policy pathways and enact public policy to address vexed and complex policy problems."

Darryl S.L. Jarvis, The Education University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

"The concept of policy styles is an important approach to understanding public policies, especially from a comparative perspective. The concept has been used primarily to understand differences among countries, but this book extends the use of the concept to policy domains and to the policy process. This Handbook makes a major contribution to understanding how and why policies differ across countries and across policy areas."

B. Guy Peters, University of Pittsburgh, USA.
