Governance and the Changing American States
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
Beschreibung"Governance and the Changing American States" provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of how state politics and government have evolved over the past several decades. In addition to describing the political and institutional changes that are occurring at the state level, David Hedge looks at the impact of those developments on the quality of statehouse democracy and the ability of the states to govern effectively. The major theme of the text is that state governments in the nineties are better able to govern than ever before but suffer the same kinds of problems--inordinate interest group influence, partisanship, political stalemate--that we have seen at the federal level.
