Review:

". . . The major strength of the Brown text is its comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of Texas politics--in particular its coverage of major institutions and description and analysis of local government. Second, it reads like a political science text without being too overwhelmed by discipline jargon. Third, there are enough contemporary examples of events and issues that can be used to guide students in relating their own experiences to the broader issue of Texas politics." - Franklin Jones, Texas Southern University

"PRACTICING TEXAS POLITICS is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and current of all the Texas government and politics textbooks available. It engages student interest through a variety of stimuli, including interesting and often ironic political cartoons, feature boxes filled with intriguing facts about Texas, comparisons of Texas with the other states, 'learning check' questions at the end of major sections, 'Point/Counterpoint' boxes that spell out opposing arguments on current political issues, colorful maps and photographs, and an ample marginal glossary." - James A. Norris, Texas A&M International University
