Politics and Policy in American States & Communities by Dennis L. Dresang, James J. Gosling

Politics and Policy in American States & Communities



Politics and Policy in American States & Communities by Dennis L. Dresang, James J. Gosling

Updated in its 8th edition, Politics and Policy in States & Communities distinguishes itself through its highly accessible writing style, inclusion of unique topics such as tribal governments, extensive discussion of intergovernmental relations, and its focus on the relationship between government and the governed--how individuals are affected by government decisions and how individuals influence public policy ( face-to-face approach). The face-to-face approach to the study of state and local governments personalizes the material, connects government to readers' lives, and makes the material more meaningful and relevant to the reader.
