This is the essential guide to Georgia government and politics, now updated and expanded. In keeping with the state's major demographic upheavals of recent decades, Georgia politics is an interesting - and sometimes volatile - mix of tradition and change. In contrast to the state's rural past, most Georgians now live in cities or suburbs, and more than 40 percent of the population was born outside the state. However, religion and race remain issues that politicians ignore at great peril, and the state still fares poorly in measures of poverty, education, and voter turnout. ""Politics in Georgia"" uses a comparative framework to examine four major topics: the foundations of contemporary Georgia politics, political participation, major political institutions, and selected public policies. Material new to this edition includes: an analysis of 2006 state elections; coverage of trends and events since the book first appeared in 1997; an examination of the Republican Party's rise in Georgia; an entirely new chapter on public opinion; significantly expanded treatment of public policy on such issues as the environment, social welfare, education, transportation, economic development, and public safety; and, discussions of major federal court cases that deal with Georgia - and that have set important precedents for the nation. Throughout, ""Politics in Georgia"" compares the state with the federal government and the other forty-nine states, as well as with earlier periods of Georgia's political development. The result is a thorough, up-to-date resource on Georgia's dynamic political system.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book is valuable to the scholarly literature on Georgia.

--Glenn Abney "coauthor of The Politics of State and City Administration "

The volume is an essential source of information for those wishing to understand Georgia politics. It is well organized, well written, and easy to read. The volume contains a wealth of current information and data about various aspects of Georgia politics, ranging from public opinion polls to government expenditures.

--William V. Moore "Social Science Quarterly "

By updating their book so that it explores the consequences of the first partisan change since Reconstruction, Fleischmann and Pierannunzi have rejuvenated their authoritative text on Georgia politics.

--Charles S. Bullock III "Richard B. Russell Professor of Political Science, University of Georgia "

A solid introduction to the politics and government of the largest and most important state in the Deep South. Fleischmann and Pierannunzi identify important demographic, social, and economic changes in the state and analyze the consequences of these changes for the recent emergence of genuine two-party competition. Anyone interested in modern Georgia politics and government will profit from reading this book.

--Merle Black "co-author of The Rise of Southern Republicans "
