American Government and Politics Today Texas Edition by Steffen W. Schmidt, Mack C. Shelley

A fresh and impressive text for the hybrid American Government and Texas Politics course, American Government and Politics Today: Texas Edition helps students experience the excitement that comes from active, informed citizenship including completely integrated and comprehensive chapters on Texas Politics. The Schmidt text is renowned nationwide for its balanced, comprehensive, and up-to-date coverage of constitutional, governmental, political, social, and economic structures and processes and the Texas Chapters follow suit; providing a wide range of viewpoints as well as unique historical contexts to give students rich, nuanced insight into the political system and decision-making processes of the Lone Star State. Together, this integrated approach allows for focus on the similarities and differences in national and Texas politics and governance while using integrated pedagogy, including critical thinking and prescriptive encouragement for citizen action to underscore this approach.With keen awareness of its audience, American Government and Politics Today: Texas Edition also incorporates current examples, the Internet, and other media to stimulate learning and excitement about American and Texas government.


Hands-down this is one of the best textbooks on Texas government that I have perused in recent years. It deserves to be in a university classroom given its content, pedagogical presentation, and clarity of the material presented. ....First, the material has substance and is covered in-depth. The tables and figures are good and useful
