Learn about Texas politics in historical context.
Written to be both engaging and accessible, Government and Politics in the Lone Star State offers both a journalist's and a political scientist's perspective in its coverage of the economic, demographic, political, and social changes contributing to contemporary Texas politics. Using theory, scholarly research, first-hand observations, anecdotes-and always a bit of humor-the authors examine the nuances of change in political behavior and the decisions of political actors at the state and local levels.
Fully revised to meet the GOVT2305/2306 curriculum changes, Government and Politics in the Lone Star State, 8/e contains 13 chapters–a full semester’s worth of Texas Government content. The second edition features the same pedagogical features students currently enjoy in American Government textbooks, extending their learning experience from the 2305 course seamlessly into 2306. MyPoliSciLab for Government and Politics in the Lone Star State makes reading the textbook a greater opportunity for analyzing current events, thinking critically about politics, and participating in politics.
Upon completing this book, readers will be able to:
- Understand the economic, demographic, political, and social changes contributing to contemporary Texas politics
- Use theory and scholarly research to understand politics
- Critically analyze Texas’s institutions and constitution
