Overview

This is an in-depth analysis of the political culture, governance, and major public policy issues of the business-driven small state of Delaware in the last decade of the twentieth century. Following an introduction to the people and land of Delaware, the book is divided into three parts. The first part discusses the state's thriving economy, political parties and politics, and the governor as leader in the context of the state's "individualistic" political culture. The second part discusses Delaware's governance comprising state and local government, nongovernments, and public administration and finance. The last part focuses on the quality-of-life policy problems of land-use planning, the environment, health, public education, welfare, and crime and justice. The books ends with the author's challenging conclusion and an appendix setting forth his "action agenda."
