Summary

This up-to-date, highly-readable text for the state and local politics course focuses on twin perspectives: the political economy of state and local politics and the impact of political reformism on states and communities. This book explores the dynamics of state and community politics, the methods citizens use to influence public officials, the major issues facing states and localities, and how the institutions of state and local government have changed over the years.
