9780618770199: Texas Politics: Individuals Making a Difference

This dynamic approach to Texas Politics combines a motivational writing style with inspiring chapter-opening vignettes of average citizens who are working to improve the political process in Texas. Popular with students and instructors alike, this theme of individual participation empowers students and encourages citizenship. Also contributing to the text's thematic framework are the view and comparison of Texas as a "megastate" --a large urbanized industrial state. Like California, New York, and Florida, Texas faces certain unique challenges, such as reforming elections and establishing home rule for counties. Texas Politics, 3/e, also features substantial coverage of policy issues, with chapters dedicated to criminal justice, education, social services, and the budget. The Third Edition has been thoroughly updated with current data, examples, and topical discussions.
