about this item

"Generally speaking, this text is better than other Texas texts I've used. Lone Star Politics is better written, offers more timely examples, and is more accessible to students. The authors do a wonderful job of keeping the style strong and suitable for college students." -Brian Cravens, Blinn College

"I enjoy the general tenor of the book-it read more like a history book, which makes it less dry than your typical government book. I believe Texan issues are well covered in this text, and I, and my students, like the boxes, maps, and key terms. These make the text ideal for an intro class, and it is very effective at engaging students at the freshman level."-Paul Pope, University of Texas at Brownsville

"I find Lone Star Politics to be deal for a Texas politics course. As a non-native Texan, I feel it helps make sense of Texas politics, the short legislative cycle, and the relative power of the governor, and offer a good unbiased political history of the state. The pedagogical features make the book very accessible. It is lively, engaging, and good for all levels of students."-Chris Sprecher, Texas A&M University
