Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Within the American system of government, the states play an extremely important role. For that reason, I think that residents of all states have a need to become as well informed as possible about the structure and workings of their state governments, and about the political forces that influence the workings of their state governments. This comprehensive and informative survey of New York State government and politics will fill that need and also serve as an excellent text for college courses.” — Frank J. Mauro, Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy and Executive Director of the Fiscal Policy Institute
