Reviews

?Unique in its all-in-one approach, this book provides a succinct, yet thorough, overview of the state legislative process. The use of imaginary legislators and bills to illustrate the steps followed in many state legislatures is very helpful. The discussion of lawmaking at the federal and local level is also useful....The coverage of the reapportionment process is well done....The tables accompanying the text are quite informative....The bibliography is solid, and the index thorough....This work is unique, with its combination of generalized description and state-by-state information....The clear writing style and the highly informative state-by-state tables make this an important work for both students and interested citizens. It is highly recommended for all high school, public, and undergraduate library collections.?-Journal of Government Information
