This paper analyzes Steven Kelman's concept of the public spirit in making public policy in his book, "Making Public Policy: A Hopeful View of American Government". It shows how the book outlines the trials and tribulations of the US government over the years whenever it has endeavored to formulate public policy by illustrating the factors driving a government to make effective public policies.

From the Paper:

"Public policy making for a nation requires extensive experience as well as the primary knowledge of the existing system. For the United States, public policy process is the responsibility of the government as well as the political bodies. It is due to this fact that one observe differences in opinions as to which party works for the interest of the people and which must have more attention - that is, whether the government should concentrate upon national interest or individual interest, states interest as opposed to international interest or should it concern itself with allocation of resources to the various department of the US government."
