This best-seller stands apart from other politics texts by its comparative approach, patient explanation, concern with policy, and ability to stimulate student interest. It focuses on the sources and nature of conflict in states and communities, along with the structures and processes designed to manage conflict. In a clear, accessible style, the authors demonstrate the important role that American states and communities play in the political life of the nation.
