Additional Book Details

In Texas, myth often clashes with the reality of everyday government. Explore the state′s rich political tradition with Lone Star Politics as the author team explains who gets what and how.



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 highly anticipated Seventh Edition includes coverage of the state′s response to the COVID pandemic, brand new chapter-level learning objectives, updated demographic and immigration statistics, and new Discussion Starter questions to help in-class discussion on critical policy debates.
