Overview

As the United States moves toward becoming a nation of suburbs, New Jersey-its most suburban state-is a place more Americans should get to know. Its volatile, candidate-centered elections are decided by politically independent suburbanites. New Jersey's experience provides lessons as other states seek to protect the environment, improve the quality of life, and accommodate a multicultural society while sustaining growth and opportunity.

Written by two of the most respected political analysts in the state, this is the only book available that provides a comprehensive overview of politics and government in New Jersey. This thoroughly revised third edition also highlights recent scandals within the government and the high profile of the governorship.
