Summary

Summary

Continues the emphasis of early editions on the political and economic environment in which state and local governments function, and their strengths and weaknesses in key areas of public policy. Topics covered include the drive toward devolution in the federal system; fiscal constraints; political corruption; term limits; court decisions on property seizures, affirmative action, and majority-minority districts; and changing approaches to welfare, education, and criminal justice.
