First published over twenty years ago, Colorado's Government has been lauded as "a model for any state in educating its citizens about government". Now in its sixth edition, it endures as the definitive text of the politics of the Centennial State.
This highly readable book offers the only up-to-date account of every major aspect of government in Colorado. Dr. Robert Lorch treats the entire apparatus of state government, its problems and its promise, and aptly explains how cities, counties, and all other local entities are created and governed.
Concise yet complete, Colorado's Government begins with a brief political history of the state followed by discussion on a range of topics including: Colorado's relationship to the federal government, political parties and pressure groups, elections, the courts, the legislature, the governor's office, agencies and public policy, school districts and special districts, and fiscal matters. This new edition also includes discussion questions and a list of key terms at the end of each chapter.
In addition to being a popular introductory text in university and high school classes, Colorado's Government is an invaluable guide for news reporters, government employees, elected officials, lobbyists, and all others interested in the workings of state government.
