Overview


TEXAS POLITICS is a comprehensive text written by acclaimed Texas educators that critically compares Texas government and politics to the concepts of democratic theory by using three main themes: democratic ideals, conservatism, and conflict. Boxed features in every chapter make the text more engaging by providing human examples of more theoretical issues, including a "You Decide" box where readers can consider the pros and cons of important topics. Lively presentation of material encourages readers to consider controversial issues and debates. More policy coverage and new treatment of "Lone Star Media" keep this book cutting edge.
