Tennessee Government and Politics: Democracy in the Volunteer State
Tennessee Government and Politics offers a timely and comprehensive new survey of the state's political evolution. The book is divided into four sections that cover the state constitution, the three branches of state government, politics in Tennessee, and current issues of public policy. Individual chapters by leading experts cover such topics as the state's political history, the evolution of the state court system, local government and politics, electoral turnout, and women in politics. Former Representative Jim Cooper contributes a chapter on congressional representation, and current policy is discussed in chapters on education, prisons, and foreign investment.
With its concise historical analysis, up-to-date presentation of contemporary issues, and appended state constitution, Tennessee Government and Politics will serve teachers, politicians, government workers, journalists, and interested citizens as an essential reference book.
