Texas Politics by James W. Riddlesperger
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


TEXAS POLITICS is a comprehensive text 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 engaging by providing human examples of more theoretical issues, including a "You Decide" box where students can consider the pros and cons of important topics. The text's lively presentation of material -- the authors use a conversational writing style and humor -- encourages students to consider controversial issues and debate. An intuitive organizational structure and integrated teaching tools support learning for students of all backgrounds and interest levels. A full-color design contains many new photos, cartoons, tables, and figures.
