TEXAS POLITICS is a comprehensive text written by acclaimed Texas educators that critically compares Texas government and politics to the concepts of democratic theory by using three main themes: democratic ideals, conservatism, and conflict. Boxed features in every chapter make the text more engaging by providing human examples of more theoretical issues, including a "You Decide" box where readers can consider the pros and cons of important topics. Lively presentation of material encourages readers to consider controversial issues and debates. More policy coverage and new treatment of "Lone Star Media" keep this book cutting edge.

About the Author:

Charldean Newell was Richard Kraemer's co-author for the first edition of this textbook in 1979 and continued as the lead author when Dr. Kraemer retired from the project in 1992. Dr. Newell died in 2014 at the age of 75. A Fort Worth native, she earned her doctorate in Government at the University of Texas at Austin in 1965. In addition to textbook writing, she was the author of THE EFFECTIVE LOCAL GOVERNMENT MANAGER (ICMA Press, 2004) and CITY EXECUTIVES (SUNY Press, 1989) and editor of MANAGING LOCAL GOVERNMENT: CASES IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT EFFECTIVENESS (ICMA Press, 2009). In her 37-year career at the University of North Texas she won awards from students, colleagues and alumni, as well as prizes from national public-administration organizations. Despite her ferocious work ethic, Dr. Newell was a cheerful and generous writing partner. Phone conversations about the next edition of this textbook were conducted amid laughter, often including her continuing critiques of the travails of her beloved Texas Rangers baseball team. She always beat her deadlines and provided acute but respectful commentary on the chapter first-drafts of her co-authors. Although she is no longer contributing new information to this book, many of her sentences and paragraphs continue to adorn its prose and its continuing themes reflect her passion for the subject matter. Her co-authors are pleased that her name is still on the cover.
