Summary
    Lone Star Politics: Theories, Concepts, and Political Activity in Texas blends the history of political activity in the state with theories that underlie and explain this activity. Through classic and contemporary political literature, students learn about the unique political culture that exists in Texas and how governments at various levels function within it.

    Over the course of thirteen chapters, students explore topics such as the evolution and impact of the Texas Constitution, the Texas view of federalism, the role of local governments in the state, and the role of the executive branch. They study the legislature and judiciary, and see how conservative ideology influences both public and social policy. They become familiar with the state's economy, its political parties, and their roles in the evolution of the state. The book concludes with an examination of interest groups in the state and the parts they play in the political system.

    The second edition features new content on Texas demographic information for Asian and Native American residents; e-governance; judicial powers; local, county, and state courts; and educational funding and property taxes.

    Lone Star Politics is ideal for classes on Texas government that focus on the concepts and theories driving the state’s political activity.
    The Third Edition will be published Spring 2024.
