Pub. Date: 12/22/2010
Lone Star Politics offers a concise, balanced, and pragmatic view of Texas government that students will find accessible, informative, and even entertaining. By demonstrating how government officials use their powers to achieve their goals, the authors show the realistic, sometimes even humorous way Texas Politics affects real-life Texans. In addition, students are encouraged to actively participate in the systems of Texas Politics and Government. Innovative pedagogical features reinforce the importance of diversity in Texas politics and show how the state's unique history has shaped its modern-day institutions.
