The Logic of American Politics, 5th editionThe American people and their government are deeply at odds over how best to overcome the obstacles currently facing the country. After observing the strains of intense partisanship and divided government, your students are probably asking what logic, if any, can be found in politics. The new fifth edition of Logic reaffirms this best-seller s place as the most accessible smart book on the market. Weaving together historical context, current politics, and analytic concepts, Logic builds students understanding of political institutions and practices as imperfect solutions to collective action problems.Consistently praised for its engaging narrative, Logic hooks students with great storytelling while arming them with a toolkit of institutional design concepts command, veto, agenda control, voting rules, delegation.Walking students through examples of how each concept works, the authors also highlight passages that apply collective action themes so students cannot miss key points.Up-to-date in its coverage of such hot-button issues as health care and financial reform, the midterm elections, and racial profiling and immigration, this fifth edition also pays special attention to political polarization. Throughout the book, the authors consistently return to the country s divide among constituents and in government as they guide students through the fundamentals of American politics.More than 100 tables, figures, and maps offer visual context to an array of political data and analysis, while over 230 carefully chosen photographs enhance the book s examples and insights. Bolded key terms, a glossary, annotated reading lists, review questions, and a companion website help students read, think, and study.For more information about Logic, click here. Lone Star Politics, 2nd editionLone Star PoLitics pays homage to the legendary political history of Texas while exploring how myth clashes with the reality of the state s day-to-day governance. How has Texas developed and flourished, but also failed to respond fully to new challenges? Explaining who gets what and how within the state, this Nogadoches author team provides an engaging narrative on the evolution of Texas politics, setting it in context with other states constitutions, policymaking, electoral practices, and school systems. Updated to cover recent events, the second edition includes new discussion and expanded coverage of: â the results of the 2010 gubernatorial elections; â the impact of the Great Recession on Texas; â the legislative process and the organization of the legislature; â the Texas two-step; â state education policy; â the controversial reauthorization of the Texas Department of Transportation; and â the effect of recent court cases.Highly regarded Texas vs. ______ boxes (which compare Texas to other states) and Texas Legends boxes (which showcase figures and institutions that have shaped and continue to influence Texas politics) have been enhanced in every chapter. Concise and a great value, Lone Star Politics provides well-crafted content and numerous tables, figures, maps, and photos at an affordable cost.For more information about Lone Star Politics, click here.
