The Texas Politics Today 2017-2018 edition (PDF) is the gold standard when it comes to its coverage of the politics, institutions, and policies of the state of Texas. It combines a comparative approach with learning objectives and questions that are tightly interwoven, all of which cover the core objectives for the Texas GOVT 2306 course. With its Insiders and Politics in Practice elements, the textbook bridges the gap between theory and practice as well as between theory and practice. The textbook sheds light on the inner workings of Texas elites, as well as megadonors to political campaigns, interest organizations, and policy makers.

The topics covered in this podcast include:
