Despite reports of the recession nearing an end, states will have to struggle to make ends meet well into the foreseeable future. The choices are sometimes stark: trade-offs between roads and schools, public safety and health care. The new edition of Governing States and Localities responds to this reality with a new, sharper focus on economic and budget pressures. The chapter on finances comes earlier in the book, helping to frame each of the subsequent issues, and a new feature called ′States under Stress′ helps students see how fiscal and budgetary policy affects all areas of state and local governance. A brand-new chapter on the environment highlights the leadership role the states have taken in fighting climate change, creating green jobs, and combating pollution. Still a great blend of engaging journalistic writing, high-quality academic analysis, and the latest scholarship, the third edition has been thoroughly updated to account for such major developments as the recentralization of federalism under the Obama administration and the further politicization and rising costs of judicial elections. The authors have expanded coverage of referendums and direct democracy, as well as the increased role states play in homeland security. A series of well-designed features asks students to apply the comparative method (′A Difference that Makes a Difference′), to see how intergovernmental relations impact localities (′Local Focus′), and to see examples of how policies are actually implemented (′Policy in Practice′). An engaging full-color design, more than thirty maps, a vivid selection of photographs, updated tables and figures, and a marginal glossary all combine to keep your students focused and learning.… (mais)

Once again I must write on this site that there will never be such a thing as a "good U.S. government textbook." However, given how mundane local government is as a subject, the textbook isn't all that horrible. Unremarkable? Yes. Bad? No. Good? Maybe?

The online portion is definitely not needed, and perhaps an egregious waste of money, especially for the cash-strapped college student, but it could be a whole lot worse—trust me. ( )
