If you find yourself constantly wading through various reference books to locate in-depth data on state government, then look no further than this comprehensive set, which reflects the research of numerous respected contributors. Edited by Haider-Markel (Univ. of Kansas, Lawrence), this work does an admirable job of synthesizing key concepts and trends that support the examination of state politics. Students and readers can find facts, entries, and charts that assist in understanding state and regional government. The set is divided into four parts: the first part begins with the operation of government, the second gives state profiles organized by region, the third is made up of over 180 articles focusing on political theory and behavior, and the fourth part concludes with detailed statistics. This ambitious study also covers hot topics and current events, including, for example, same-sex marriage and eminent domain. Written in a clear, concise manner, the work is enhanced by numerous tables.
