Description

Examine Texas politics in historical, economic, and demographic contexts Revel(TM) Government and Politics in the Lone Star State guides students through the historical, economic, demographic, and political environment that has made Texas government and political culture what it is. Drawing on their experiences in political science, journalism, and consulting, authors Tucker Gibson, Clay Robison, and Joanne Connor Green explain Texas's governmental institutions, the players who influence them, and how these factors compare to those in other states. In order to boost student engagement with key concepts, the 2016 Presidential Election Edition incorporates coverage of contemporary issues that dominate today's headlines, as well as the most up-to-date data.

Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience -- for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

About L Tucker Gibson

Tucker Gibson taught for forty-three years at Trinity University, focusing on state and local government, political parties and interest groups, public policy, and religion and politics. He has assisted governments in Central Texas in redistricting, owned a market research firm, and consulted with political candidates and businesses. In addition to multiple editions of this book, he has coauthored the Texas chapters in numerous national and Texas government textbooks published by Pearson. Clay Robison covered state government and politics in Texas for almost forty years as a journalist, including twenty-six years as Austin Bureau Chief for the Houston Chronicle, before retiring in 2009.

Joanne Connor Green is Professor of Political Science at Texas Christian University. Green studies the role of gender in American politics. She and her colleagues are examining how the presence of women and non-Caucasian representatives in state legislatures affect public policies, specifically as they pertain to elders, the disabled, and children. Green, who is also interested in promoting civic engagement, regularly speaks to community groups regarding campaigns and elections as well as gender in American politics.show more
