Description of Practicing Texas Politics, Enhanced, 17th Edition:
Delivering a thoroughly updated analysis of practices and policies, Brown/Langenegger/Garcia/Biles/Rynbrandt/Reyna/Huerta’s PRACTICING TEXAS POLITICS, ENHANCED, 17th Edition, gives you an insider’s look at how public-policy making is conducted in the Lone Star State. It includes a special focus on the role of a growing Latino population in all aspects of Texas government, the effects of the 2018 elections on the state and the impact of a volatile oil and gas industry on state finances. “”Point/Counterpoint”” features offer opposing views of key controversial issues, illustrating that there is rarely a single “”right”” answer to an issue. “”How Do We Compare?”” boxes spotlight the differences between Texas and other states, while “”Students in Action”” features provide stories of students making meaningful difference in their colleges, communities or the state.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
