From the Publisher"Texas Politics: Governing the Lone Star State by Cal Jillson takes an interesting approach to the study of Texas politics and state politics more generally. Jillson successfully integrates the necessary components of Texas politics, while using keen insight about the origin of many political issues facing Texas. Further, the text uses a distinctly comparative approach toward examining politics in Texas. This book will enrich the quality of understanding about Texas politics and is an essential contribution to any course on Texas or state politics."
—Brent D. Boyea, The University of Texas at Arlington
"Cal Jillson offers a concise look at Texas government and politics that is both interesting and informative. The third edition successfully balances the need to provide necessary factual information with the more difficult task of capturing the dynamic and color of the Texas political process."
—Jerry Polinard, The University of Texas-Pan American
"A brief textbook can be an instructor’s boon or bane, depending upon what’s included. Professor Jillson’s choices and his writing style make this textbook a joy to use, thoroughly covering the essentials while allowing an instructor the freedom to expand on the topics that engage and interest students."
—Stefan D. Haag, Austin Community College
"Dr. Jillson employs a writing style that makes the subject of Texas politics understandable for students. It is the perfect text for an instructor who doesn’t use the subject as the crux of material in their introductory American and Texas government courses. At the same time, the material is concise and accurate."
—Gary Brown, Lone Star College-Montgomery
