Description:

Brown et al. have thoroughly updated their market-leading survey of Texas government with new coverage of public policy, giving special attention to political developments since 2010. Extensive coverage of the 2012 general election, and its results, provides students with the most up-to-date information available. Selected Reading and chapter-opening cartoons encourage further discussion of timely topics, in addition to conflicts, within the state of Texas. Features such as the thoroughly revised "Students in Action" section in each chapter provide students with a wide range of views on current issues and relevant topics, as well as suggestions for how they can play an active role in Lone Star State politics.
