In Texas, myth often clashes with the reality of everyday government. Explore the state’s rich political tradition with the Eighth Edition of Lone Star Politics.
Utilizing a comparative approach, the authors set Texas in context with other states′ constitutions, policymaking, electoral practices, and institutions as they delve into the evolution of its politics. Critical thinking questions and unvarnished Winners and Losers discussions guide students toward understanding Texas government and assessing the state′s political landscape.
The Eighth Edition includes a brand-new chapter on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, along with the "tried and true" updates in every chapter that highlight the push-pull relationship between the state, federal, and local governments.
