Overview

Dresang, Dennis and Gosling, James J., Politics and Policy in American States and Communities, 3rd Edition*\ With a unique organizing theme, a face-to-face approach, the book shows how individuals are affected by decisions of governmental officials and how individuals can influence public policy. This approach personalizes the study of state and local government, making it more meaningful to the reader. Three areas of extensive updating include: the changing nature of intergovernmental relations; the policy chapters (welfare reform, crime, juvenile crime); and the changing nature of partisan politics within states. For those interested in the U.S. state and local government.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text on the importance of state and local governments in Americans' daily lives, relating politics, institutions, and policies to the mundane interactions everyone has with government officials and employees. This latest edition adds coverage of issues such as highlights of the 2000 elections, including the fate of voter initiatives on a number of ballots; the implementation of term limits for some state legislatures; and developments in state, local, and tribal relations with the adoption of devolution policies by the federal government. Dresang teaches at the U. of Wisconsin-Madison and Gosling at the U. of Utah. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
