An accessible look at Texas politics

¿

Written to be both engaging and accessible, Government and Politics in the Lone Star State¿offers both a journalist's and a political scientist's¿perspective in¿its coverage of the economic, demographic, political, and social changes contributing to contemporary Texas¿politics.¿Using theory, scholarly research, first-hand observations, anecdotes - and always a bit of humor - the authors examine the nuances of change in political behavior and the decisions of political actors at the state and local levels.

¿

Fully revised to meet the 2306 curriculum changes,Government and Politics in the Lone Star State, 8e, contains 13 chapters — a full semester’s worth of Texas Government content.¿ The eighth edition features the same pedagogical features students currently enjoy in traditional American Government textbooks, extending their learning experience from the 2305 course seamlessly into 2306.
