The new Fourth Edition is thoroughly updated, and includes expanded coverage of federalism, Rick Perry's legacy as goverr, the impact of the state's growing diversity on political participation and behaviour, and important policy discussion around fracking, education reforms, and immigration. New full-page infographics visually capture a chapter's key concepts, making the abstract understandable and comparisons easy.
