From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—These volumes present a comprehensive look at the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories by comparing and contrasting their governments. Part one presents topical essays on key concepts of state government. Next are descriptions of each state and territory, which include a brief historical overview and an essay outlining the political environment; elections and voting behavior; the legislative, executive, and judicial branches; intergovernmental relations; state-tribal relations (where applicable); and long-term issues and policy trends. Articles include a state map; a graph illustrating partisan distribution of presidential election results, 1988–2004; and sidebars detailing voting behavior, political history, and other topics. Each entry ends with a bibliography and further-reading suggestions. Part three offers 180 alphabetical articles that examine a plethora of subjects, including political theory, government functions, and political behavior. The book closes with 18 statistical tables that compare states' populations, growth rates, and economic outputs. This handy reference will be useful to students learning about their home state or territory, or researching comparative governments. Topics can be lofty and quite specific but also intriguing—details such as how many constitutions a state has had, whether its legislature is full- or part-time, which states provide their legislators with offices, and which put incoming mail under a legislator's seat are all addressed.—Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt.
